"Alibi Jones: Vacation" is a stand-alone short story featuring characters from the novel "Alibi Jones." Hoping for some rest and relaxation, Alibi and his girlfriend Katie visit their Dakhur friend Kit in his new assignment on the planet Paradise. But Paradise doesn't really live up to its name... Instead of downtime, they find a coup going down around them, as Christopher Blakely attempts to overthrow the planetary government - led by his mother.
The print edition is about the size of a comic book - 25 pages - and features cover art by Federico Guillen: http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/alibi-jones-vacation/14874811. An earlier audio version of "Alibi Jones: Vacation" appeared in the audiobook-only anthology "Podioracket Presents: Visionaries" alongside shorts by J.C. Hutchins, Philippa Ballantine, Seth Harwood, Basil Sands, Brian Rathbone and others.
Readers can win a print copy by being one of the first five reviewers of "Alibi Jones: Vacation" on Amazon .com: http://www.Amazon.com/Alibi-Jones-Vacation-Adventures-ebook/dp/B004NNV00E/ followed by sending an email to email@example.com.

Go back before the beginning and start with "Vatican Assassin" - It's all in the family, as the assassin in question is Alibi's sire BC - Bernard Campion - who kills for the Pope of the New catholic Church. BC's trilogy starts with him on assignment on the Moon - sent there apparently as a papal PR man but actually as a killer, targeting Governor Meredith McEntyre of Lunar Prime.
