Summary
The future of an orbiting space colony is threatened by a fugitive and the assassin on her trail in this science fiction adventure from three-time Hugo Award winner Allen Steele. Skycorp has always expected the near-Earth space colony Clarke County to serve as a cash cow, bringing the corporate behemoth a substantial return on its investment through food production and tourism. Now that the Church of Elvis is planning a major revival meeting on the colony, the execs anticipate that the devout and the curious alike will be rocketing to Clarke County in droves. Its residents, however, would prefer to be left alone, and there has even been some dangerous talk of freedom and independence from Earth. It's Sheriff John Bigthorn's job to keep the peace on the colony, but his work may prove more difficult than usual in the upcoming days - especially following the unexpected arrival of a frightened young woman carrying money and important data she's stolen from her gangster ex-boyfriend. With an ice-cold assassin called the Golem on the runaway's tail, the holy "Living Elvis" stirring up the faithful, and revolution in the wind, Bigthorn will have to lay off the peyote and stay particularly sharp if he hopes to prevent total chaos and bloodshed... and perhaps even save his floating artificial world
