Apocalypse Brown, lowdown land-lawyer, can’t explain to his only client, Peter Piper, why the medical examiner has his brother Paulie’s brain in a jar of clear liquid. Then things get real crazy when his former secretary, Tanya Berg, twin sister of the recently departed super singing-sensation Teah Berg, arrives at his doorstep for help.
Between two-headed dogs and spoiled movie stars and an unyielding City Hall, Pock Brown unravels a grisly trade in human desperation and vanity. A head-spinning future of transplant technology reveals itself to him in the most ghoulish of ways.
Join him and his impromptu assistant, Tanya, on a bawdy, irreverent, and macabre adventure as they discover what happened to Teah Berg and as they try to keep their heads where they belong, on their shoulders.

Thought to have twice as much water as Earth, Europa offers humanity the best chance of finding microorganic life within the solar system—life that would prohibit harvesting the moon’s resources under international space laws. To confirm the presence or absence of life, Earth’s leaders plan a manned mission to Europa.
Jamie Caldicott, husband, father, and hero of a botched Mars mission, grudgingly accepts a position on the crew. His main concern is providing for his family. The presence or absence of Europan life doesn't much interest him.
As the mission progresses, however, it becomes evident that powerful interests plan to harvest Europa whether or not life exists. As they journey farther from Earth than any manned craft before them, Caldicott discovers that some of his crewmates aren’t who they claim to be.
The fates of two worlds depend on Jamie Caldicott. If he makes the wrong choice, he'll never return from Europa's icy surface.
