From the Back Cover
Polar city: capital of Hagar, one of a handful of worlds on which the tiny, human-dominated Republic sits, uneasily squeezed between the powerful Interstellar Confederation and the enormous Coreward Alliance.
When a suspected alien spy from the Confederation Embassy is found murdered, a potentially explosive political situation faces Police Chief Bates. And when talented psychic Mulligan is brought to the scene to pick up echoes of the event, what he experiences sends him into amnesiac shock.
Meanwhile, murders continue unabated and a major crisis threatens to destabilise the Republic…
POLAR CITY BLUES
is an immensely colourful and highly innovative science fiction first for Katharine Kerr. Cyberpunk, 'noir' thriller, otherworldly intrigue – all the elements are here in this fast-paced, action-packed, thought-provoking adventure.
"There's cops, there's drugrunners, there's whores and pimps…There's a weird bacterium, a lot of computer jockeying, and even more politics; there's detective work, social commentary and lots of action. It's a strong soup and a hell of a lot of fun. You should buy this one."

My teenage son read it after me and then my grandmother. We would all give it 5 stars.
It would also make a wonderful movie.
