Kindle Edition: 279 pages
Publisher: ePublishing Works!
In an America broken by a "limited" nuclear war, no one has use for would-be private eye Wally Sands. No one except for Dr. Charles Winfield, an eccentric scientist who believes he was cloned from a prominent biochemist as part of a top-secret project undertaken before the war.
Sands sets out to find Winfield's mysterious progenitor, but finds himself on the trail of a killer instead.
Now, in far-away, fabled England, Sands must uncover the facts about the case that has brought him to his promised land, and at the same time confront the unsettling truth about his world, his life, and his loyalties.
A story of love and betrayal, life and death, the future and the past. A story that will make you laugh, make you cry—and make you think.

"A hard science fiction, medium-boiled detective story that succeeds in both fields... kept me guessing right up to the end." ~Aboriginal Science Fiction
"Humanist science fiction of a high order." ~Locus
