Six of the best detectives from science fiction literature

Ryan Britt is the author of Luke Skywalker Can't Read and Other Geeky Truths, forthcoming in fall 2015. One entry on his list of six of the best detectives from science fiction literature, as shared at the B & N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog:
Simone Pierce (Depth, by Lev AC Rosen)

Out this week, the latest novel from genre-bender Lev AC Rosen takes place in a future New York City that is partially submerged thanks to the melting of the polar ice caps. Both a straightforward noir plot-twister and a art heist caper, finds Rosen’s protagonist, private detective Simone Pierce, in search of “The Blonde,” a woman who may or may not have killed her husband and set Simone up for the crime. Sharp, witty, and tough, Simone is a woman we root for not just because she’s in the mystery, but because she seems like a real person.
