Operating a cut rate detective agency on an alien world can present its share of surprises and pratfalls - especially when an alien shape-changing huli appoints himself your unwanted partner. It gets considerably worse when he adds three lethal females of the species into the mix.
When the Wilder Agency gets a lead on the theft of the fabled jewel that is the basis of the planet's financial structure, it's up to the alien Gel to plan the retrieval of the gem and engineer a presumably dazzling reward.
There are, unfortunately, a few tiny flaws in this plan. Such as Gel, the three huli maidens, and the happy-go-lucky yogurt delivery-tiger who comes along for the ride.
