Read On - The Name is Kade

Paperback

The name is Kade, Jack Kade. I take the jobs the cops can’t do. I clear the skyways of the scum of the universe. I hunt down the gangsters, the kidnappers, every kind of low life. It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it.

A call from Earth brings Kade back from Saturn. His old enemy Zab Hecko is free and intent on destroying the human race. To make things harder, Hecko’s had a face transplant. Can Kade find him before it is too late?

Told in the style of a Raymond Chandler novel, this is a funny, action-packed sci-fi noir.
