From official release/information:
Once Luna Base became Luna City/University, it became one of the most prestigious places to study. Noah Skyler, a crime scene investigator on Earth, could never afford to work on his Masters in Material Science at LunaU if he hadn't received the Aidan Cosgrove Memorial Grant. Just before Noah arrives a body is found outside the city without a vacuum suit, the victim has left no DNA on file, and doesn't seem to exist in any database. Luna City Special Investigations Chief of Security Linus Pavlik is under pressure to solve this crime before investors meet with the mayor in few days. So, Noah Skyler arrives on Luna, meets Illene Hatt (yes, the mega-rich Hatt's), gets his room assignment and finds he's in an apartment for two with two other students (the standard double used as a triple), and he has to start work with Luna City Special Investigations immediately before he can acclimate to the lower gravity. Dead Man on the Moon doesn't waste time getting started and moves along at a swift page turning pace.
