    This is a good mystery with an unusual science fiction twist. About six hundred thousand years ago one of our ancestors, Homo Erectus, evolved into two human species: the 'majors' and the 'outers'. Unlike most of the human species on our planet (and there have been a lot of them; see The Last Human: A Guide to Twenty-Two Species of Extinct Humans), both species still exist. So this is an alternative "present" with two types of humans living together.Troy and Lexi are cops and have just become partners. Troy is a 'major'. They are more like Homo Sapiens (that's us). They tend to be larger physically, have better eyesight, and have a more spiritual outlook on life. Lexi is an 'outer'. Outers are generally more intelligent, they eat insects instead of cows, and rely on observable science more than faith. There are other differences that you'll find in the story.On their first case together, Troy and Lexi find a body with some missing parts. The location turns out to be a "body dump", and other mutilated bodies are found. And the game is afoot.Okay, this is a "buddy cop" plot, with two unlike characters getting paired up, having to learn how to work with each other, and discovering each others' quirks and skills. You've seen it before in other books, movies and TV shows. I couldn't help thinking of the "Alien Nation" movies and TV series. If you like that kind of story, you're probably going to enjoy "Body Harvest".This is an easy read. The writing style is good, the story moves along nicely. The author is British, so if you're American you might have to adjust a bit. (A "trolly" is a shopping cart, not those quaint public transportation vehicles in San Francisco.) Fortunately, I watch a lot of British TV shows so I knew most of the terminology. One expression I hadn't come across before was "give it some welly", and I had to look it up. It's apparently a farming term; farmers wear Wellington Boots (wellies), and when they drive a tractor they sometimes have to "give it a bit of welly"... hit the accelerator, move it along. Like "putting the pedal to the metal". There, I've saved you a Google lookup. You're welcome.I generally prefer action thrillers to procedural mysteries, but I really enjoyed this book and look forward to further cases with Troy and Lexi.(And I just have to share this with you because I'm always amused when someone gets a saying completely wrong. I had a friend who thought the phrase was "putting the petal to the medal". They though it came from the Vietnam War era in the 1970's when protesters would walk up to soldiers and try to give them flowers.)
