The story is set in a world that has been settled by alien refugees from the dying planet of Ryxin. The Ryxins have special sensory powers but these are being diluted by inter breeding with humans, much to the concern of senior Ryxins who are determined to ensure their people remain pure blooded. The main character in the novel is a PI named Curtis who is investigating a murder but his efforts are complicated by the fact that Ryxins and humans have separate laws and punishment for crimes. What I enjoyed about the book was the analogy of how people perceive and treat each other according to their ethnicity and/or their perceived worth. Also, the lack of empathy for anyone who dares stand in the way of a determined idealist, whilst being attributed to the Ryxins, is a trait often seen in our own species.
