Description

Gil “The Arm” Hamilton was one of the top operatives of ARM, the elite UN police force. His intuition was unfailingly accurate; his detective skills second to none; and his psychic powers—esper sense and telekinesis—were awesome.

Tough and deadly, Gil Hamilton could reach right into a person's brain for the truth . . . or for the kill!

Read all the stories of the legendary ARM operative, collected here in one volume for the very first time:

• Organleggers aren't stopping at robbing body parts from the corpses of the frozen dead. Now they're stealing from the living . . . and Gil is a prime target!
• The most beautiful woman on Luna has been falsely accused of murder. Unless Gil can prove her innocence, she's doomed to end up as a sack of spare parts in the organ banks. . . .
• And more . . . Plus an all-new, never-before-published Gil Hamilton adventure!
