From the pre-title blurb, it seems that this mix of policier and sci-fi is the standard fare for this author and I am not too sure
of his success in mixing the two genres. The hero is (aren't they all nowadays) seriously flawed but still having the support
of his superior and for some reason he becomes involved with a legless heroine whose body and face and very attractive.
The plot is well constructed, the sci-fi element reasonable well introduced but inconsistent and the policier element rather
submerged by this and the growing attraction of hero for heroine. Maybe a further reading will convince me but I am in no
great hurry to search out other of Mr David's books.
