Summary: He came to the city on the trail of the killers of his father, and for reasons that will be elucidated, he didn’t remain. Also, that there’s a dog, okay.

Why You Should Read This:
Space mounties! This is a futuristic tale, where robots are common and animals are not. Ray is still a cop, but he’s ‘queer’ – his implant didn’t take. Ray hesitantly gets involved in Fraser’s hunt for the killer(s) of his father and ends up embroiled in a case much bigger than it originally seems. Fans of Vecchio will be pleased with his appearance in the fic. I love how much world-building the author did, little background knowledge dropped casually into the fic, creating a whole. If you’re a fan of sci-fic, you should give this fic a try.
