It is the year 2240 - In the shadow of the earth's sole remaining space elevator is the Red Light quarter of High Town. A dark world of glitz and glamour, celebrities and scavs, crime and corruption, desire and death.
The Red Light is an enigma, a place frequented by the rich and famous visiting topflight clubs, while a block away grim fate awaits the unwary and unwise who wander into the wrong refuse filled alley. A place inhabited by those with state-of-the-art intracranial reticulation and those who seek to enrich themselves through brute force. A place as seductive as it is sleazy, as entertaining as it is deadly.
The mean streets of the Red Light are a tough place to work, it's even tougher when you're a private investigator whose client has been abducted. R.R. Johnson is a PI with a talent for trouble, always ready to respond with a wisecrack, a punch, or a bullet depending on circumstances. Johnson navigates a course between corrupt cops who want him dead, kidnappers who want him gone, clients who want answers, and intelligence agents who want to subvert his investigation. As trails grow cold and tensions mount, the smart move would be to turn around and walk away. Johnson bores straight ahead, even if he doesn't understand what he's walking into.
When you need to know, Johnson knows, The Lowdown in High Town.
