My supposedly nefarious self couldn't get into the city.
Friday 56:
I plunged on, branches whipping past my shoulders. This was so different from the City of Cries, where you couldn't even walk on a lawn without a drone accosting you, informing you of whatever city ordinances you'd broken while giving you a ticket. 
This week I'm spotlighting a recent arrival on my TBR mountain - The Jigsaw Assassin by Catherine Asaro. This is the fourth book in a futuristic mystery series. Here is the description from Amazon: 
Selei City is the capital of the Imerialte and one of the most desired locales in all of the Skolian Empire. But its thin veneer of civilization is cracked when a series of brutal crimes implicates those in political power in a vast conspiracy. Three prominent scientists have lost their lives to a serial killer—and notes at the scenes of the crimes lead to a connection to the Royalist political party.

Major Bhaajan, former military officer turned private detective, is called back to Selei City to solve the crime. Bhaaj and her crew of Undercity Dust Knights plunge into the Byzantine world of Imperial politics—a jigsaw world where none of the pieces seem to fit. As the assassination plot becomes more and more convoluted, Bhaaj is kidnapped, threatened with death, and must fight for her life against the growing number of people threatened by her investigation. Bhaaj has faced all this and more, but now she must deal with something far deadlier—interstellar politics.
