This satisfying pulp blend of sci-fi and noir finds its hardboiled hero banished from the Earth for publishing some top-secret government files. For his crime Bruce Gordon is given a one-way ticket to Mars - and it's no picnic. Amongst all of Earth's undesirables, junkies, and crooks Gordon’s about to find his ticket back to his home planet might be harder to come by than he thought, even after getting a job with the crooked Martian police force. Peter Ganim performs the - often-deplorable - Martian cast of characters with gusto and keeps the bloody, gritty, outer-space action churning along in this fun tale of corruption on a wild frontier.

Publisher's Summary

Bruce Gordon was an ex-fighter, ex-gambler, ex-cop, ex-reporter, and now he was an ex-patriot of Earth. Security shipped him to Mars with a knife, 100 credits, and a yellow card that meant no return.

A science-fiction novel that would appeal to Mickey Spillane fans, Police Your Planet features lots of violence, beatings, and blood. But this isn't just a crime novel put into space; this is a hard SF novel, and the terraforming of Mars is central to the story.

A very good story!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Please pay no attention to that review talking about how it made them suicidal! I hate it when people give a bad review to a book in order to just be cute and make a joke at the authors expense! Is the story a little dark??? Of course! It’s a noir crime thriller on another planet! It’s supposed to be a little dark! That’s not a reason to give a book a bad review!

Moon is a Harsh Mistress

I most dearly love RAH, but I kept thinking as I read this, that it seems Moon is a Harsh Mistress must have been a ripoff of this novel. So I checked and this one published ten years earlier. I didn’t really enjoy the story nearly as much, but if did come first, and did not use any deus ex machina devices. And I could listen to Mr. Charsick read the phone book! What an excellent voice! I should read more Lester Del Rey

just ok

Little known work from a classic writer. Reasonably entertaining, though dated in style and outlook and science.
it was a freebie, so great!

Nja

Not the most interesting and groundbreaking scfi novel. Basically isn't really that at all, everything could probably take place in a poor African city (with a dome in not a physical way). Anyway I were kind of entertained most of the book. (If it were longer I probably would not.)
