Hyperion City: the largest human colony on Mars. It’s home to criminals, interplanetary conspiracies, and the ruins of an ancient alien civilization… and it’s also home to Juno Steel, Private Eye.
Juno Steel has had a lot of clients in his time, high-profile and low. But when he’s called in to investigate the murder of Croesus Kanagawa, head of the Kanagawa crime-family-slash-entertainment-network, it’s not the client that interests him. It’s what Croesus was wearing when he died – and an ancient curse that hangs over that very strange mask.
