Editors Note
Note In the Los Angeles of the near future, aliens have come to live among us. They've learned the language and tried to fit in. But there's something about them we don't know. Two detectives - one human, one alien - put aside their mutual distrust and uncover a trail of murder and something more terrifying.
Plot Summary
Summary Set in a futuristic Los Angeles, 300,000 humanoid extra-terrestrials (called "Newcomers" or "Slags") from an alien refugee slave ship decide to stay on earth and integrate themselves into human society. When Matthew Sykes, an alcoholic and bigoted cop, is paired with one of these Newcomers to investigate a murder, they uncover a sinister conspiracy that threatens to destroy the fragile harmony between aliens and humans.
