    Summary

    The scars across his body mark a treasure map of mistakes. Tiny shrapnel scars and rosy-red roadrash, a lifetime of being thrown to the ground by Academy training and the real world. The ivory line tracing across his jaw, almost invisible. The tattoos and the traintracks, the pockmarked puncture wounds scattered like a horrifying constellation across his body.

    He’s so tired.

    Summary

    The concept is simple: Retract the dermal sheath (the skin-- Hank can’t decide which one sounds freakier), use the cleaning solution on the seams and surfaces where debris has accumulated, and use mechanical abrasion as needed to clear it away.

    It sounds easy enough-- something even Hank can handle without some kind of catastrophic result. Even so, he gets the faintest sense of reluctance when Connor lifts his hands and lets the dermal sheath pull back to his wrists. He looks at them, expression impassive, before he offers them toward Hank wordlessly.

    Summary

    This is how the longer cases go. They wind him up like a music box, until one day there’s a click and everything falls open and Connor can sing and sing and sing. And thrill with the singing. And come home with empirical proof of his worth as a human being.

    The year is 1890. Connor Stern has been shipped off to newly incorporated Prescott, Arizona, to track down a renowned and evasive raider gang on behalf of local mining interests. His partner in the case is the completely incalcitrant County Sheriff, who’s far more likely at any one time to be finding his way to a bottle than a bandit. His target? Feared outlaw Markus, a man who’s growing increasingly eager to introduce Connor to the business end of a six-shooter gun.

    But Connor’s in luck, because as it becomes evident to all three men that the solutions to their problems are fortuitously linked, Markus must consider the possibility that his headhunter might just have more potential to him as an ally than a corpse.

    You catch more flies with honey, after all...
