THIRDS Volume 1
When the testimony of the homicide detective Dexter J. Daley sends his partner to prison for murder, the consequences – and the media frenzy – are not long in coming. Soon he finds himself without a boyfriend, without friends and, after an unpleasant meeting in a parking lot at the end of the trial, almost without teeth.
Dex fears being transferred from the Human Police Corps or, worse, being thrown out. Instead, his foster father, a sergeant in the Defense, Reconnaissance and Human Intelligence squadron, known as THIRDS, causes Dex to be recruited as a Defense agent.
Dex is determined to get his life back on track and is anxious to start the new job. But his first meeting with the team leader, Sloane Brodie, who turns out to be his new partner, Teriano Jaguar, turns out to be a disaster. When the team is asked to investigate the murder of three UmanTeriani activists, it soon becomes clear that Dex will have to fight hard both to be accepted by his partner and his team, and to be able to catch the killer.
