The year is 2113. Our heroes are two agents of the
Network Intelligence Organization, gumshoes of the highest order. After the
apparent suicide of a known associate, and an antimatter attack that
destroyed a moon and wrecked an entire planet, Gumshoe #1 is on the trail of the
alien leader of the terrorist Movement of Worlds. Meanwhile, back at the ranch,
his partner, Gumshoe #2, is on the hunt for those responsible for framing him
and his partner for treason most foul. And just who, or what, is behind it all?
That, my dear friends, is the question. The Ultra
Thin Man is a mystery-thriller wrapped in science fiction, a Fantastic
First practically gift-wrapped for Mysterious Galaxy. Interstellar conspiracy,
enigmatic aliens, bizarre drugs, body-morphing technology, “Thin Men,” and the
fate of the Union … just of few of the elements that make The Ultra Thin Man awesomeyay. I just love this stuff.
--Patrick, no, the other one.
A Fantastic First Pick for August.
