This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In a domed city on a planet orbiting Barnard's Star, a recently hired maintenance man named Kane has just committed murder.
Minutes later, the airlocks on the neighbourhood block are opened and the murderer is asphyxiated along with thirty-one innocent residents.
Jax, the lowly dome operator on duty at the time, is accused of mass homicide and faced with a mound of impossible evidence against him.
His only ally is Runstom, the rogue police officer charged with transporting him to a secure off-world facility. The pair must risk everything to prove Jax didn’t commit the atrocity and uncover the truth before they both wind up dead.

‘I really enjoyed Unexpected Rain. I like the world LaPier has created and think there is a lot of potential for more stories in his universe’ – Invested Ivana, One Book Two (OneBookTwo.com)
‘This noble offering by a new voice pays homage in storytelling to past masters by doing what they did best: Having fun AND danger without getting bogged down by HARD SF rules. LaPier turns in a modern buddy romp in the Classic SF Vein!’ – Nick Cole, author of The Wasteland Saga and Soda Pop Soldier
