Subtitled : Survival Is The Only Law.
A benchmark in modern SF. A sharp, clever, funny morality tale that answers the biggest question of all: what makes us human?
In a fight outside a bar Ramon Espejo kills a man.
Next day, all hell breaks loose. The dead man was a big shot, a diplomat on a mission to the out-world of São Paulo. Ramon goes on the run, heading north toward unexplored territory, land so far only glimpsed from orbit during the first colony surveys.
Ramon has gone from being nothing in the hills of Mexico to being nothing on São Paulo. He makes a bare living prospecting for minerals. Maybe God meant him to be poor, or he wouldn't have made him so mean. He can't even remember why he killed the European, only the drinking, and the rage that followed.
Better to be alone in the wild landscape . . . off the map, beyond law and civilization. Each trip out he's sure will be the big one that'll make him rich. This one, too.
Instead he finds something else, something terrifying. Or rather, it finds him, and uses him: as humans are used by species more intelligent than themselves.
But Ramon Espejo is about to prove what a man is capable of. Ramon is about to demonstrate what it is to be human; to be angry, intelligent and alive. And he is about to discover his function in the broad flow of the universe. And why it was he killed the diplomat in the first place . . .
"What a jaw-dropping ride; so full of surprises, adventure, action, philosophy, psychology. Just amazing. This is not a book to be read very quickly. Take the time to pick up all the nuances, and see if you can guess what's coming next. It was not predictable. Also, this isn't in-depth sci-fi with a lot of long discussions about space travel and a lot of world-building. This is very accessible to fans of most any genre." - Goodreads Review.
