   In the future with the discovery of zero pint gravity, death no longer remains a mystery, as it is only a portal from one life into another. Astrology regained credibility as a science with people like Philipa Cyrion assisting the police in solving crimes through horoscopes, reading palms and cards.

   Disgusted with earthly politics and its ruler Emperor Theo, Philipa joins Hadrien as independent operators, which is why they landed on Badares Space Station. The Idealian, Durikeeen Sunteel, was about to integrate her essence with the station's network of computers when someone murdered her. Hadrien and Philipa were hired to solve the homicide, but early in the investigation the former and a strange alien vanish. A heartbroken Philipa searches for her partner on Argos, home of the alien who abducted him while also trying to solve a seemingly impossible murder case.

    In WAYWARD MOON, the heroine's character is much more developed than in her previous appearance (see HEART OF STONE). Her British roots appear, especially when excited, as she uses a future form of Cockney. She also realizes she loves her partner. Different species inhabit the space station with all of them feeling very realistic. The who-done-it is fun on two fronts, a murder investigation and Hadrien's vanishing act. Denny DeMartino illuminates the science fiction galaxy with her latest creation.
