Green, Terence M. Blue Limbo. New York: Tor, 3/1998. 288pp.

Just imagine if murder victims could be revived long enough to tell who killed them. Just imagine if a rogue cop went crazy enough to try and clean up the dirty streets of a dystopian future Toronto all by himself. Just imagine a combination of hard-boiled detective violence a la Dirty Harry with high-tech noir wizardry a la Bladerunner. Mix it all up with a healthy dose of the sentimentallity and heart we've come to expect from Green after Shadow of Ashland and you get some idea of what Blue Limbo is all about. This short but powerful novel is a keeper from one of Canada's best.
