“‘Rick! Rick Harrison!’
I turned and saw a young woman running toward the slide-walk, elbowing her way through the crowds with consummate and practiced skill. Legs up to here and auburn hair down to there...and as deadly as fifty-eight kilos of antimatter in a leaky containment field.
‘Hello, Lily,’ I said.”
-Free Fall, William H. Keith
Reexamine the case of a murdered lawyer with Captain of Detectives Rick Harrison, in this preview of Free Fall’s second chapter! New York Times bestselling author William H. Keith’s Android-based novel will be available in the third quarter of 2011.
Can Rick Harrison, the wry and reluctant detective assigned to a high-profile murder, solve the case? In the dystopian future that is Free Fall’s setting, Rick will travel from the megapolis of New Angeles to the moon base of Heinlein and search for clues through an uncooperative assortment of bioroids, clones, and disgruntled human laborers. Drawn into a deep conspiracy Rick must attempt to finish his investigation and find an answer to the question he never expected to face: what is the true definition of humanity?
Free Fall’s second chapter begins Rick Harrison’s investigation, and introduces you to the potential obstacles Rick will face in his pursuit of justice. In the city of New Angeles the relationship between full-humans and androids is taut with animosity.
