"Gilden proves that you can write first-rate humorous science fiction." -The Science Fiction Chronicle

He called himself Zoot Marlowe, said he'd just blown in from Cay City, but even the wacked out surfer dudes could tell that the four-fout detective with the giant schnoz was from somewhere out of their world. Still, he could throw a mean frisbee and he said he was a private eye, and when someone decided to smash and trash all the surfing robots in Malibu just days before the biggest surfing contest of the year, Zoot was the only being around willing to track the bot beaters down.

But Zoot didn't know just how widespread a conspiracy he was about to run up against. For this first case of his Earthly career would see him taking on everything from the Malibu cops to Samurai robots; motorcycle madmen to talking gorillas; and a misplaced mistress of genetic manipulation!
