Alien Murders by Stephen Goldin--a science fiction murder mystery

Exiting announcement: Alien Murders has been permanently reduced in price to $1.99. The book comprises two novelettes that were originally published in Analog Magazine.

The book is set in a future where, although physical travel between the stars is impossible because of the vast distances involved, methods of communication are instantaneous. As a result, there are a couple of different ways to visit alien worlds: veering (using virtual reality to project images back and forth), and teeping (using telepresence to control robotic bodies on the other planet). It's even possible to engage in trade, licensing the rights to books, art, inventions, and other intellectual property.

Deborah Raboinowitz is a literary broker. She veers to alien worlds and sells the publishing rights to Earth books. But when an alien is murdered right before her eyes, there's no way she can keep from being involved and solving the murder herself.

Then, when an old friend is accused of a murder on a different world, Deborah has to become a lawyer and defend her friend before a kangaroo court by solving that murder, too.

This book was recently featured on Holly Hooks's Bargain eBooks blog. I hope you'll check it out for yourself. Pleasant reading!
