In this dark and gripping sci-fi noir, an exiled police detective arrives at a lunar penal colony just as a psychotic android begins a murderous odyssey across the far side of the moon. Purgatory is the lawless moon colony of eccentric billionaire, Fletcher Brass: a mecca for war criminals, murderers, sex fiends, and adventurous tourists. You can't find better drugs, cheaper plastic surgery, or a more ominous travel advisory anywhere in the universe. But trouble is brewing in Brass's black-market heaven. When an exiled cop arrives in this wild new frontier, he immediately finds himself investigating a string of ruthless assassinations in which Brass himself-and his equally ambitious daughter-are the chief suspects. Meanwhile, two-thousand kilometers away, an amnesiac android, Leonardo Black, rampages across the lunar surface. Programmed with only the notorious "Brass Code"-a compendium of corporate laws that would make Ayn Rand blush-Black has only one goal in mind: to find Purgatory and conquer it. Visual, visceral, and tons of fun, The Dark Side fuses hard science with brutal crime and lunar adventure. It's an intense, stylish, and action-packed thriller with a body count to match.

Professional reviews

"This stark, shining work is powerfully told by Steve West, whose character portrayals and command of accents are mind-boggling. One minute he's the hard-as-nails police detective who is transferred to the hellish town of Purgatory, on the dark side of the moon. Next, he is a dysfunctional, serial-killing android that speaks in a polite British accent when he's not wiping out those in his path. Then, he's the boorish Fletcher Brass, the billionaire who runs the town, which is a place of last resort for killers, perverts, war criminals, and brave tourists. There are so many incredible events, observations, and details in this novel that listeners will find themselves stopping and pondering their ramifications even as the characters take them for granted.
