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.

A very good story!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Please pay no attention to that review talking about how it made them suicidal! I hate it when people give a bad review to a book in order to just be cute and make a joke at the authors expense! Is the story a little dark??? Of course! It’s a noir crime thriller on another planet! It’s supposed to be a little dark! That’s not a reason to give a book a bad review!

Moon is a Harsh Mistress

I most dearly love RAH, but I kept thinking as I read this, that it seems Moon is a Harsh Mistress must have been a ripoff of this novel. So I checked and this one published ten years earlier. I didn’t really enjoy the story nearly as much, but if did come first, and did not use any deus ex machina devices. And I could listen to Mr. Charsick read the phone book! What an excellent voice! I should read more Lester Del Rey

Nja

Not the most interesting and groundbreaking scfi novel. Basically isn't really that at all, everything could probably take place in a poor African city (with a dome in not a physical way). Anyway I were kind of entertained most of the book. (If it were longer I probably would not.)

A western on Mars

A new sheriff comes to clean up a corrupt, wild-west type city.
it might as well have been a black and white Movie of the Week.

just ok

Little known work from a classic writer. Reasonably entertaining, though dated in style and outlook and science.
it was a freebie, so great!
