Polar City Nightmare by Katharine Kerr

Polar City Nightmare

Katharine Kerr

Baseball, blackmail, murder and interstellar conflicts. This fast-paced, futuristic thriller kept me hooked. A good one to try if you don't usually read science fiction.

Extract

The grey plastocrete passage leads to the stands, and there's no need for anyone to be there at this time of night .... On the top step she sees someone, a human male, walking back and forth. It's Yosef Mbaye, she realises, one of the Bears' best pitchers .... Back in the shadows by the door to the locker room, she hesitates, wondering what in hell he's up to.
