Red Dawn seems to be a common name... Space Cops High Moon is the last in the series. And that makes me sad, because I feel it was just starting to get great. In this novel the two Solar Police Officers, Joss O'Bannion and Evan Glyndower, are trying to find some lost equipment on Mars and run into something bigger and more dangerous than anything they have ever had to deal with before. Tons of humor and action, jokes about manga and classical TV series such as Dr. WHO?, quotes from Monty Python and True Grit. Think High Noon with lasers and air tight space suits. The science is slightly hard as with the rest of the books but the focus is still on the cool characters and swiftly moving plot.
It's a Western... On Mars! It's supposed to be a nice quiet vacation on Mars. Then someone starts shooting.
The third book in the Space Cops series has officers O'Bannion and Glyndower looking for a stolen Solar Patrol Communications Array. Their search takes them from the lawless mining towns of Mars, to an all out battle with a fanatical (and well armed) fringe group called the Red Dawn. This book is a quick, fun read with an exciting and memorable final battle.
