L.A. Is the new home of 300,000 humanoid extraterrestrials. When a gang of these newcomers (aliens) kills a police detective's partner, he sets out to solve the crime with his new partner -- the L.A.P.D.'s first newcomer detective. But the unlikely pair soon uncover a far more dangerous threat to society.
Editor's 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.
