Editorial reviews

This satisfying pulp blend of sci-fi and noir finds its hardboiled hero banished from the Earth for publishing some top-secret government files. For his crime Bruce Gordon is given a one-way ticket to Mars - and it's no picnic. Amongst all of Earth's undesirables, junkies, and crooks Gordon’s about to find his ticket back to his home planet might be harder to come by than he thought, even after getting a job with the crooked Martian police force. Peter Ganim performs the - often-deplorable - Martian cast of characters with gusto and keeps the bloody, gritty, outer-space action churning along in this fun tale of corruption on a wild frontier.

Publisher's summary

Bruce Gordon was an ex-fighter, ex-gambler, ex-cop, ex-reporter, and now he was an ex-patriot of Earth. Security shipped him to Mars with a knife, 100 credits, and a yellow card that meant no return.

A science-fiction novel that would appeal to Mickey Spillane fans, Police Your Planet features lots of violence, beatings, and blood. But this isn't just a crime novel put into space; this is a hard SF novel, and the terraforming of Mars is central to the story.
