The Geaha Incident
By Pat Canterbury
The Geaha Incident is an Afro-Futuristic mystery set on artificial satellites during the 23rd Century, when beings are dying under unusual means. Jamaica Wong, a biracial homicide detective now called tracers, wants nothing more than to be bringing in "bad guys" on the 23rd ring of Uranus--outlaw territory, much like earth's wild west of the 1870's. Instead, she’s assigned to do "paperwork” on a satellite where she'll die of boredom--unless she can discover why so many species are dying.
