Carlucci's Edge, by Russo
I just finished Carlucci's Edge by Richard Paul Russo, and it's really more detective novel than science fiction. The plot's not terribly complex and isn't hard to follow, but it is complex enough to maintain interest and keep those pages turning. I like the edge these books have -the darkness. They have a noir-esque feel to them to me. The science fiction elements are not so over-whelming as to turn off folks who aren't familiar with the genre. I enjoyed the read and look forward to the 3rd book in this trilogy. There's an interview with Russo here at scifi.com and another here at infinityplus.
