Two Democracies


Opportunity, a science fiction detective novel by Alasdair C. Shaw

Security Lieutenant Dave is looking forward to some simple cases and patching things up with his wife. His handling of a terrorist attack has gained him acclaim and some new friends in high places, but he is still closely involved with Arancha Station's mob boss.
When the space station manager is killed in a new and worrying way, Dave realises that he's got possibly the biggest case of his career. Unfortunately, as soon as his new boss arrives with reinforcements, he is relegated to monitoring data and assigned a rookie partner to babysit.
Dave needs to find something that will crack the case open before the killer can strike again.

Praise for the first story in the series:
"Even though only a short story it's easy to say that 'Duty' packs a big punch"
"I really didn't want this one to end"
"Anything written by Alasdair Shaw is pure reading pleasure."

'Opportunity' is the first full length novel in the Two Democracies: Justice series and follows on from the short story 'Duty', which was featured in The Officer anthology.
