Payne is a biotech researcher who finds a naked corpse in his apartment one night. Tho she's a complete stranger, he's still considered the primary suspect. New laws give him the right to investigate the case himself with the authorities' full cooperation. He must learn her identity & her history. But someone doesn't want him to succeed & he soon finds himself likely to become the next victim. His search for the killer leads to a biological hazard threatening the existence of his decaying world. "The science fiction mystery is an extremely difficult genre to handle well, & it's a delightful surprise when a 1st novelist pulls the trick off gracefully. Joe Clifford Faust has constructed a compelling mystery...Chillingly plausible."--Locus...

A Death of Honor Reviews
Read this when I in high school, as a member of the Science Fiction Book Club. Got to meet the author on a book signing tour, who told me of his disappointment at the generic "disco ball" cover that got slapped on the book club edition. But it didn't stop me from enjoying it. It's a great little mystery sci-fi blend, sufficiently engaging that everyone in my family (including my Mom!) read and enjoyed the book. In our house, that's a high honor.
well, not a bad read, dystopian and futuristic, barely. Many interesting conceptual ideas, but never fully explained or resolved, these are just touched upon, sparking the readers interest, but taking you nowhere.
I was really suurprised with this book. I didn't expect much from it, but it was a decent little sci-fi story.
I picked this Science Fiction Book Club edition up used somewhere in Chicago and read it quickly. It's basically a murder mystery set in the near future, a plausible one.
Interesting, Honor was the person who died.
ehhh....it was ok...not what I expected...lacked something....seems like this is a revisited story...
eh...not bad writing but the story line was predictable...good fast read but just know you can guess what will happen before the end of the book.
