If you like noir tales of the Dashiell Hammett variety, and aren't afraid of a little sci fi, then I think you'll enjoy this. The sci fi setting isn't overpowering given the premise - interplanetary travel is possible, but the detective is working on a destitute planet. The poverty keeps the story grounded in pulp feel, and there's enough sci fi for the author to play with some fun scenarios.

What would have made KOP better?
Absolutely hated it. Not the performance was good, and the writing isn't bad, but the premise really, really stinks. We are to understand that the MIXED_RACE decendants of space age share-croppers live a hopeless, wretched squallid, existence on a panet so fertize that the forest has to be regularly burned, because the"Eurt-Mun do want to buy the moon-shine no-moe". Yikes......the whole world is theirs! I will not be buying book 2.

The author goes to great effort to build a marvelous setting and interesting characters, but just as the story gets up steam it just seams to end. While the ride lasts its engrossing, just a few more chapters would have done the job.
