What would a solid noir story be like if it were set on Mars? In the future? With robots?

That’d be the questions Sawyer asked when he set out to write “Red Planet Blues,” and boy did he answer them. It’s a solid plot, a well-written mystery, and fantastic piece of creativity.

It does what so many great books do: forces the reader to question her assumptions at every turn. It’s like a series of magic tricks, where you see what you expect to see, and therefore miss the obvious.

And it’s a future that feels real, a city that feels tactile, characters that ring true.

It’s wonderful and thoughtful fun.
