Summary :

A futuristic SF murder mystery. D.A. Payne is a boilerplate biotechnologist in a decaying future America besieged by a Soviet dominated world. One day he comes home from work to find the corpse of a beautiful woman on the floor of his apartment. Excercising his constitutional right to investigate the crime himself, his journey takes him in and out of the city's sex-and-dance discos and reunites him with an old lover who has stolen their child back from the government. When the investigation takes an unwelcome turn, Payne finds himself fleeing for his life, hoping for escape to the world's remaining free enclave, Australia.

Death of Honor, a (2011)
Edition Details (From the author):

A Death of Honor was the second novel I wrote and the first published. Originally it was a "throw away" idea. I was writing Desperate Measures and had gotten the idea for this bit where a man was investigating a crime himself because the police were too backed up to do it themselves. So I wrote the first chapter and passed it on to someone who was in a writerís group with me. She was going to write a second chapter and pass it on to someone else, etc. Time went by and I finished DM. In that time I really started thinking about Payneís predicament, and the woman with the chapter hadnít done anything with it yet. So I got the first chapter back from her and finished the book.

Incidentally, Trinina was going to simply be a walk on part to show that Payne had lots of baggage. But my wife read the chapter that introduced her and said she really liked her as a character and wondered how she would fit into what I was doing. I couldnít let my wife down, could I? So I started thinking about that and Trinina really came in and took over the story. Itís a better book because of that.
