In Harry Watt, Bounty Hunter: 2150 AD - And Harry's Life Just Got More Complicated, Rob Guy combines old-fashioned detective thrillers a la Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett with futuristic science fiction—and it works! As the title indicates, Watt is a “fugitive recovery agent,” or bounty hunter. He was with the “Bureau,” which is apparently similar to our FBI, for many years, but was forced to resign when framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Watt is charged with bringing a famous, missing hydrologist back from Mars. He thinks there’s something fishy about the case, so instead he goes to Venus, intending to go to Mars soon afterward. While on Venus, he also tries to track down the killer of the man who had been his partner in the Bureau. Along the way, he encounters several women, a talking parrot and more, and finds himself in many bizarre situations.
Rob Guy isn’t just a straight narrative writer, he’s also a humorist. This can be seen in the names of some of his characters, such as “Raquel Belch” and “Judge Headlock.” Guy’s futuristic technology, such as a “face changer” that can alter someone’s facial features to look like someone else, is also very innovative. Metaphysics also enters the picture – Harry constantly has conversations with his dead partner, Larry, who at times can also be seen by others. The book is very well-written, without a lot of unnecessary detail. In addition, while of course there is some violence, Guy doesn’t focus on the gory details. All in all, Harry Watt, Bounty Hunter is a very entertaining little book that will appeal to fans of detective novels and science fiction alike.
