1 Cook, Glen. FADED STEEL HEAT. GARRETT P.I. SERIES.
New York Roc, (New York, 1999), 3rd printing. 1999 0451454790 / 9780451454799 1st Printing Mass Market Paperback Very Good+ Cover Art By Alan Pollock. 
356 pp, 6 3/4" H. "Since the end of the war, there had always been bigotry against non-humans in TunFaire. Even though many species had sacrificed in battle, some groups of humans thought the 'Golden Rule' translated to 'Humans rule. Now give us your gold'. With the streets descending into bloody race riots, and the organized 'human' brotherhoods flexing both physical and economic muscle, TunFaire was a hairsbreadth from total chaos. Garrett is a wise-guy private investigator who speaks loudly and carries a big stick. He gets pulled into the game when a powerful gang of human rightists starts trying to shake down his employer. Backed by a circle of friends no one would wish on their worst enemy - and a foul-mouthed parrot that won't shut up - Garrett is caught in a conspiracy of hate that pits man against - everybody!" Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear.
