"It was raining in the city by the bay. A hard rain. Hard enough to wash the slime out of the streets and back into the holes they crawled out of . . ." In the hardboiled style of a classic West Coast crime novel, HARD RAIN seamlessly blends the real world of the USS Enterprise with the fictional version of San Francisco 1941, as seen by Captain Jean-Luc Picard's own holodeck creation, detective Dixon Hill. The story begins with the Enterprise stuck in an anomaly, warping both space and time so that for every minute the ship is trapped, a month goes by in normal time. The only piece of equipment that can get the ship safely home has been stolen by gangsters in the Dixon Hill holodeck program. Captain Picard, as Dixon Hill, ventures into this San Francisco world to confront the ruthless crime boss and retrieve the crucial item. Soon after, the first of a series of murders on the Enterprise occurs and the murder weapon is found to be a revolver . . . from 1941 Earth. Who is behind the murders? All the clues are given. All the suspects are given. Readers will be engrossed in trying to figure out the answer . . . but only the very clever will guess the murderer's true identity before the final chapter.

The Starship Enterprise™ has lost power and control, its own momentum carrying it ever deeper into a dangerous zone of warped space and time. And the only way out is hidden somewhere in the mean streets and back alleys of old Frisco. But so is a cold-blooded murderer.... Now Dixon Hill, alias Jean-Luc Picard, must get to the bottom of a tangled mystery that threatens the lives of everyone aboard the Enterprise !

Description :


Bob Dylan's poem-song of 1962, written at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, is often thought to be a protest song about nuclear war. But Dylan refuted this in an interview saying It's not atomic rain, it's not fallout rain... I just] mean some sort of end that's just got to happen. And photographer Mark Edwards shows us a new ending in no uncertain terms with his piercing, disturbing images of the ghastlier aspects of human experience in a damaged environment. Part of the poetry's wonder is that it can be interpreted in so many ways, including as a protest against racism, but it really does seem to speak very clearly of environmental damages. More importantly it expresses so beautifully the rage and pain we must all feel at all kinds of injustice and wanton destruction, and in the early 21st century, humanity's bashing of the planet's natural resources is forward in our minds
