Android: Free Fall
It is the future, and while the world has changed, crime has not. When an influential lawyer is brutally murdered at the top of the Beanstalk, a towering exoatmospheric elevator serving as Earth’s hub of interplanetary trade, Captain Rick Harrison reluctantly accepts the case. Harrison’s investigation soon leads him from the sprawling megapolis of New Angeles to the distant moon base of Heinlein, where he must search for clues amongst an uncooperative assortment of bioroids, clones, and disgruntled human laborers.
But Harrison quickly finds himself at the center of an ever-deepening conspiracy. Why did the killer apparently use a mining laser, an unwieldy weapon? What is the true connection between the victim and a powerful anti-android lobby? And on the hunt for a killer, a hardened cop is faced with the one question he never expected: What is the true definition of humanity?

With minions of the Taint now seeking him for their own twisted purposes, Ethan must put his trust in Sojourner - a woman claiming to be a draconic scion.
