About the author:
Edward M. Grant spent his childhood in the South-West of Britain and studied Physics at Oxford, but now lives in Canada. He wrote magazine articles and worked on numerous indie movies in and around London, including co-writing a vampire feature that was later shot in California. He has travelled the world, been a VIP at several space shuttle launches, survived earthquakes and a tsunami, climbed Mt Fuji and visits nuclear explosion sites as a hobby.
He grew up on pulp horror and SF novels and still has a soft spot for both. However, his background as a physicist helps him write stories toward the harder end of the SF spectrum.

Followed by three bodies.
It's New Year's Eve, 2091. Party time at the Heavenly Retreat habitat, The Sleaziest Place In The Solar SystemTM.

Peter Kaine thinks he's found an easy job, tidying up after a messy divorce. But the unwritten rule of bounty hunting is that your second client is never as easy as the first.
The crew of the space freighter Big Momma think they've found an easy job, carrying cargo from the Heavenly Retreat to the backwater asteroid of Petrina. But life is never easy around the kind of passengers willing to pay for a cabin on their ship.
