The Trivial Thing
by Van Alrik
In a near-future world of crime and crises, private detective Tin Baxter takes on a dispirited mother's plea to rescue her son while a faux-pious political mastermind, barbarous fraternal twins with a taste for human flesh, and a host of henchmen impede the way. Baxter must match their wits one by one in order to win the boy, retain his memories and avoid becoming anyone's next meal . . .
