Book Impressions - Fissure Monroe by Tom Lichtenburg

This is an unusual story. It's set in a world where getting the perfect skeleton is the latest fashion craze. It concerns the theft of a bone that is worthless and priceless at the same time. It's told in a police interview with the main characters.

The writing itself is pretty good, although the story itself is a little confusing. The way perspectives change rapidly gives you little time to absorb what you've just learnt. I enjoyed the story and it's a good example of what is great about Indie publishing, you'd be unlikely to discover a story like this through other channels.

I have to say that I love the cover as well.

Dawn Debris is hired to find a possibly-radiation-poisoned leg bone of a high society fashionette who only wants to fit in with the new craze of skeletal transplants that's sweeping the nation. A store detective, a street musician, a tedious pundit and a suspicious beautician are all involved as market forces compete in a world where beauty is no longer skin deep.
