Juno is a dirty cop...
Juno Mozambe works the steamy streets of Lagarto, a failed colony world rotten with economic and moral decay. Once feared as the corrupt police chief's bare-knuckled enforcer, he is now a collections man, taking a cut from all the action—prostitution, gambling, drugs. Burdened by the weight of decades of brutal misdeeds, he considers himself retired from his violent past.
But when an army lieutenant is found dead outside a whorehouse, stabbed fourteen times and ritualistically mutilated, Juno's former partner, Chief Chang, calls in a favor. He assigns Juno to the case and inexplicably partners him up with the earnest but inexperienced Maggie Orzo.
Together, Juno and Maggie must untangle the twisted web spun by a ruthless serial killer, a vicious crime lord, and a mysterious offworlder. To discover the truth, they'll have to expose Lagarto's darkest secrets, and all before Juno's past comes crashing into the present.
