The Detective is a science fiction novella co-authored by author Matt Wallace and Scott Sigler. This novel is a spinoff of the character Frederico Esteban Giuseppe Gonzaga introduced in The Starter.


GFL star Quentin Barnes is an orphan born into a culture that prizes family connections above all. He spent his youth struggling with poverty. When he signed his deal with the Ionath Krakens and became rich, one of the first things he did was hire a private detective to find out if his family is still alive.

The Detective is the story of that search, as seen through the eyes of Frederico Esteban Giuseppe Gonzaga — a.k.a. “Fred,” a master of disguise and a truly dangerous human. But Fred’s past is just as big a mystery as is the whereabouts of Quentin’s family. This gritty scifi/noir novel follows the tradition of ALTERED CARBON and BLADE RUNNER, giving you an anti-hero that won’t stop until the job is done.

THE DETECTIVE runs from roughly Week Seven of the 2683 regular season in The Starter (GFL Book II) through Week Ten of the 2684 regular season in The All-Pro (GFL Book III).
