Low Gravity
Presenting the third chapter preview of Free Fall, an upcoming novel
Free Fall | Published 18 July 2011

I heard that once, maybe twenty years ago, a beanpod started up-Stalk and they had the deck set to display the view down–nothing but emptiness beneath the passengers’ feet–down, down, down all the way to the clouds far below, then the cloud-shadowed mountains below that. One passenger reportedly went into a panic attack, injured two other passengers who tried to help him, then went into cardiac arrest and died. They reversed the pod and brought them back down, of course, but by the time the med-assist personnel arrived, the man was brain dead, beyond the reach of even the best resus-techs.
Free Fall, William H. Keith

Welcome back to our third and final chapter preview of Free Fall! In Free Fall, by New York Times bestselling author William H. Keith, it is the future, and murder is still an all-too-common occurrence. When an influential lawyer is brutally murdered at the top of the Beanstalk, Earth’s towering exoatmospheric elevator used for interplanetary trade, Captain of Detectives Rick Harrison finds himself on the hunt for a killer. At the center of a deep conspiracy, Harrison’s investigation leads him from the megapolis of New Angeles to the moon base of Heinlein and face to face with a question he never expected: what is the true definition of humanity?

The world beneath his feet

Stay on the case with Captain of Detectives Rick Harrison as he travels closer to Midway Station, the next stop on his hunt for a killer. During his travel up-Stalk, Rick interacts with a moon-based soldier, and has an intriguing conversation with a clone who doesn’t seem to be as simple as he says.

Free Fall’s third chapter (pdf, 628 KB) is available for download from the Free Fall support page (where you can also download the first and second chapters).
