A species that has no word for murder has a murderer aboard their spaceship!

New York Times bestselling romantic comedy author Gail Carriger (writing as G.L. Carriger) brings you a light-hearted science fiction mystery featuring an adorable lavender alien and his human crush.

ALIEN

Tristol lives in exile. But he's built a life for himself aboard a massive space station. He's even begun to understand the complex nuances of human courting rituals. Detective Hastion is finally flirting back!

MURDER

Except that Tristol's beloved adopted home is unexpectedly contacted by the galoi - a xenophobic species with five genders, purple skin, and serious attitude. They need the help of a detective because there's a murderer aboard their spaceship. Murder is so rare, the galoi don't even have a word for it. Tristol knows this because he is galoi.

ROMANCE

Which means that he and Detective Hastion are on the case... together.

"This is a fun, funny, sexy book, and I'm so happy it exists. It hits you in the feels, makes you laugh and cry, and makes you think about matters of family, kin, and the heart." ~ Bookriot

Delicate Sensibilities?

Contains men who love other men in graphic detail, regardless of gender, biology, or skin color... and lots of emotively sweet tentacle hair. Perfect for fans of Lesli Richardson, Becky Chambers, or Lyn Gala.

Want more adorable awkward gay boys and hot sex cleverly disguising social commentary? Try Carriger's San Andreas Shifters series.
