The independent planet of Rhysalan provides Sanctuary to 1,462 governments-in-exile. It is the responsibility of the Xenocriminology and Alien Relations department of the Military Crimes Investigation Division to keep a firm leash on the hundreds of thousands of xenos residing on-planet. Assassinations, revolutions, civil wars, and attempted planetary genocides are all in a day’s work for warrant officer Graven Tower, MCID-XAR.
When an alien ambassador is found dead in orbit while returning to his home planet accompanied by a company of mercenaries from Wardogs Incorporated, suspicions are naturally aroused. But uncovering the truth isn’t deemed to be in the interest of the planetary administration, which would just as soon pretend the ambassador’s death was an accident. And when Chief Warrant Officer Graven Tower arrives at the scene of the crime, another question is soon raised: are MCID’s dynamic investigation methods truly compatible with thinly armored spaceship hulls?
Quantum Mortis is the new action-packed Mil-SF mystery series from Vox Day, the Hugo-nominated author of the epic fantasy series Arts of Dark and Light, and Steve Rzasa. Quantum Mortis: Gravity Kills is a novella in the fast-paced series featuring Graven Tower, MCID.
