Publisher's Summary

Here is a story starring the always unconventional Terrestrial Diplomat Retief. As a diplomat, Retief does not always follow procedure. Well, the truth is that he almost never follows procedure but somehow his wit and strength manage to salvage most situations from the bumbling of the other diplomats. His sardonic approach to inter galactic negotiations is always a delight to hear. Keith Laumer at his sardonic best.

Retief rides again

Retief is supposed to be a diplomat, but really he is more like an unauthorized action hero in a tux. It's 50s sci-fi and needs to be read as a period piece. Also note that this is a pricey 40 minute story.

Unfortunately, the voice actor is the worst I have ever heard. Amazing. Check the sample before you buy. Maybe you'll like it. Stranger things have happened.
