Editorial Reviews

Review

“Hammond’s writing is workman-like with occasional terse highlights, offering rewards to fans of both crime novels and science fiction.”  —Publishers Weekly

“The best SF Noir since Richard K. Morgan. Gritty and gruesome with the punch of a high-velocity bullet.”  —Kat Richardson

I look forward to reading the next installment.
Eric Kelts
I love the mix and if we, as readers, ever get more in this genre/style it will be hard to top the work of Warren Hammond and the Kop series.

I love the action, the gritty setting, all the characters, particularly Juno, and Maggie.

Juno Mozambe is gonna take KOP (Koba Office of Police) back, and the first step is taking over protection of a brothel that Emil Mota (Juno's arch enemy) has already claimed. With a motley crew of dirty cops, and an ex-prostitute/bodyguard named Maria, Juno takes a stand against the nightly riots that accompany rolling blackouts that plunge the city of Koba into darkness. When Muto gets wind of this, he's not amused, and Juno's intimidation tactics aren't working against him anymore. When the men of Juno's crew begin turning up slaughtered in the most brutal ways, Juno knows he's up against someone, and something, bigger than Muto. Along with his former partner (and honest cop) Maggie, he vows to get to the bottom of it, before another man dies, and KOP is corrupt for good.

There were a few times when I thought I knew where Kop Killer was going. I so didn't. Really didn't. Kop Killer is the third in a series featuring Juno Mozambe, but if you haven't read the first two, that's ok, because the author does a great job on catching you up on events without info dump, although you might miss out on some of the emotional resonance gained from reading the first two. Kop Killer is a wonderful mashup of police procedural, (very) dark noir, and some of the creepiest sci fi you'll ever read. There's humor here too, of the blackest kind, and you may find your mouth twisting into a slow, grim smile, since it kind of creeps up on you. Koba is a humid, sticky, fly and lizard ridden, leafy green mess of a city and it's such a part of the narrative, it's almost its own character. As Juno gets deeper into the gruesome murderers that seem to stick to him like flies (couldn't help it), even the jaded ex-cop can't believe how depraved this killer is.

I'm not much for long reviews so I'll just say that I liked this one more than the others in the series. It's a very good read, with some closure for our Juno. That, and we get to see more facets of Juno's character are pluses for me. Hopefully we'll see some more KOP novels, I know I enjoy them.

KOP KILLER(2012) is the 3rd installment from my favorite Tijuana-in-Space SciFi Noir Series.

Juno, our Ex-KOP "hero" from a super-corrupt city's police force from the broke, far-distant planet of Largarto (a jungle-like place infested with nasty bugs and lizards, and rich off-worlders bringing their money and high-tech body mods to take advantage of the locals' TJ-like "hospitality"), is trying to make the police force better, by starting a "protection racket" and out-doing the police force with violence and corruption, in an attempt to put his lady ex-partner in charge of the force.

Warren has really outdone himself with this book. I had really enjoyed the previous two books in the series, Kop and Ex-Kop but this book takes his main character Juno Mozambe to a new level. He is masterful at telling Juno's story and even though he is not your normal hero you find yourself rooting for him to succeed throughout the series. There are many twists and turns along the way that will keep you guessing. If you like Sci-Fi Fantasy this series is a must read!

Set in the same economically depressed wet and hot jungle of the previous books it takes you to a new, seedy, and interesting place as the main characters try to clean up their moral and ethical compasses and also for some to bow to the realities of a corrupt world. Following the classic detective noir style it does not disappoint. I would suggest reading the previous novels before this one.

This is a "novel" novel, and a great read!

I've been a fan of this series since the first book, KOP, was released several years ago. An interesting combination of science fiction and gritty police drama, mixed with a bit of "Blade Runner" noir, I have found myself entrigued and engaged by the world created by Hammond.

This book will appeal to hard core Richard K Morgan fans, Blade Runner disciples and readers of noir police/suspence books alike.

Although this book can stand alone, consider purchasing KOP and Ex-KOP first to fully immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the series.

Keep up the great work, Warren! I look forward to reading the next installment.
