In this hardboiled science fiction thriller, Juno, having been booted off the police force, is barely getting by as a low-level bagman and photographer for the scandal rags. But it gets worse: his wife is in critical condition at the hospital and Juno doesn't have the money to pay her bills. Desperate for cash, Juno agrees to help his ex-partner, Maggie Orzo, solve a difficult case. A young girl sits on death row, accused of brutally murdering her own parents. She's confessed to the murders, but Maggie isn't buying it, so she sends Juno out to get some answers.
Working with Maggie, Juno comes into contact with her new partner, Ian. As dirty as they come, Ian is eager to rise in the police force no matter what the cost. Somehow Ian, a vicious serial killer, and the girl on death row are all connected. It is up to Juno and Maggie to find out how before more people die.

Review quote

Praise for "Kop: "
"Offers rewards to fans of both crime novels and science fiction."
"--Publishers Weekly
""Gritty, tough, sweaty, with a vivid and well thought-out backdrop, solid, brutal sleuthing, a deeply flawed but worthy hero, and a sequel waiting in the wings: a powerful combination."
"--Kirkus Reviews""A futuristic techno thriller in a Bogart overcoat. A beautiful first novel, straight out of the dark streets of noir, but kissed with futuristic neon and chrome. Very original and entertaining, and yet somehow pleasingly familiar."
--Joe R. Lansdale, author of "Lost Echoes
""A thrillingly dark read."
"--Booklist""Hammond's first novel introduces a flawed hero with a checkered past and a dystopian world where good doesn't always win. This SF detective novel should appeal to fans of noir fiction."
"--Library Journal"
