Review: The Ultra Thin Man by Patrick Swenson


Publisher: Tor
Publishing Date: August 2014
ISBN: 9780765336941
Genre: SciFi
Rating: 1.6/5

Publisher Description: In the twenty-second century, a future in which mortaline wire controls the weather on the settled planets and entire refugee camps drowse in drug-induced slumber, no one—alive or dead, human or alien—is quite what they seem. When terrorists manage to crash Coral, the moon, into its home planet of Ribon, forcing evacuation, it’s up to Dave Crowell and Alan Brindos, contract detectives for the Network Intelligence Organization, to solve a case of interplanetary consequences.

Review: Cover art is well done.

This was a DNF. This was boring as heck due to the endless dialogue. Even the aliens engage in this perpetual dialogue-ing. The aliens are not believable as to be rendered human-like in function and alien in form.

Good idea with just too much dialogue to get through to make this attempt to finish mildly interesting.
