Combining the first and fourth novels of S. Andrew Swann’s genre-spanning series, The Moreau Quartet: Volume One centers on moreau private detective Nohar Rajasthan, and includes a new afterword by the author.
It’s 2053, and the U.S. has long since genetically engineered life successfully. “Moreaus,” humanoid and animal hybrids, and “frankensteins,” genetically manipulated humans, live as second-class citizens.
Nohar Rajasthan is a moreau, a humanoid of tiger stock. Raised by a human after his parents’ death, Nohar ekes out a career as a private eye. Mixing science fiction with detective thrillers, Nohar’s story leaps off the page with all the nonstop excitement and danger of an action blockbuster.
In Forests of the Night:When Nohar accepts a commission from a frankenstein to investigate the death of the campaign manager of a local politico, all hell breaks loose. Nohar finds himself targeted by everyone from local cops to federal agents to a drug-running gang to an assassin with a 100% kill rate.
In Fearful Symmetries: Nohar retired from the private eye business ten years ago, and just wants to spend his remaining time in the peace and quiet of his wilderness homestead. So when a human lawyer asks him to take on a missing moreau case, he refuses—and soon after is attacked by a paramilitary team. Now Nohar must find the missing moreau and discover why some- one wants him dead.

Praise for the Moreau Quartet: “An entertaining, hard-boiled detective novel set in a gritty, relatively near-future.... If any book was meant to be made into an action-adventure movie, this is it.” --Locus
“Mix in every detective novel you’ve ever read, include some Terminator and The Incredible Hulk, and you’ve got Nohar.... I look forward to more adventures.” --VOYA
“Fast-paced and well-written, with a plot packed with action and suspense.... To create a credible tiger-”human with whom the reader can empathize is no mean feat, but Swann pulls it off.” --Kliatt
“Here is the printed-page equivalent of an action movie: a novel as vivid as a cinema blockbuster loaded with high-budget special effects.... It also has the rhythm of an action flick, with violent fight or chase scenes occurring at frequent intervals.” --The New York Review of Science Fiction
