'Beyond Good and Evil'
While a female photojournalist and her big, goofy pig-man companion may not scream political thriller, the sci-fi setting and unusual leads could be just the thing for weaving a tale with a message about political corruption and conspiracy. Hyllys has long been under attack by a nasty alien race called the DomZ. The problem is that the Alpha Sections meant to protect Hyllys haven't exactly been doing the job -- begging the question of who they're really working for. Hard truths about corruption go down a lot easier with a pig-man to liven things up.
