The amazon.com product description:
For seniors who need a comfortable place to live, SeniorSource fits the bill. Zero-g, medical care, even a work exchange program for those who can’t afford it otherwise. And for one former NYPD detective, SeniorSource provides a lifeline. But if he fails to solve his latest case—the murder of a young boy on the Moon—in 24 hours, he’ll find himself downgraded or worse, back on Earth. In other words, dead. But this case proves to be far from what it seems.I'm not usually that big on short stories, I'll be honest on that. Although, now that I think about it more, maybe I read more short stories than I think - it's just that they're usually collected into volumes.
“Kristine Kathryn Rusch is one of the best writers in the field.”
This one though, intrigued me. I love science fiction and the idea of a seniors home being in zero gravity is most definitely a new one to me. The rest of the story was just as captivating and I had an enjoyable time this morning reading it.
I don't want to say too much more, just because I really don't want to risk spoiling the story - it is a short story after all. Still, after reading it, I'm curious to maybe try some of Kristine Kathryn Rusch's other works. Maybe you will be too.
