Publisher's Summary

The fate of the Alliance hangs in the balance as the masterminds behind the Anniversary Day bombings trigger the final stages of a plan decades in the making. A plan that will bring about the total destruction of every dome on the Moon.
As Moon Security Chief Noelle DeRicci struggles with the overwhelming scope of the investigation, former Retrieval Artist Miles Flint races to save the life of a man from his daughter Talia’s past. A man with vital information regarding the identity of the masterminds who planned the Anniversary Day bombings. And deep beneath the surface of Armstrong, a dome engineer makes a chilling discovery that could crack the investigation wide open.
If only he can get someone to believe him.

A fitting ending - but I'm glad it's over

I really like K.K. Rusch's stories in both the "Retrieval Artist" and the "Diving" universes, but this particular splitting of the "Anniversary Day Saga" into 8 different books hasn't been as satisfying. I would rather have seen three or four complete novels than eight of what are really each incomplete novellas.

That said, the writing is as good as usual, the characters we know are all here, and most of the loose ends get tied up. There's one long-term plot arc that I can think of that is still open at the end, but that may be a part of the background of politics and change taking place in this invented society and something we see progress on with each new novel.

This novella had one job - tie up the strings from the other seven. It did that, and now we can move on.

SUPERB

If you could sum up Masterminds in three words, what would they be?

EXCITING,INTRIGUING,ENTHRALLING

What other book might you compare Masterminds to, and why?

OTHER BOOKS IN THE RETRIEVAL ARTIST SERIES,SAME GENRE

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

I FELT AS THOUGH I WAS READING THE BOOK MYSELF,HIS NARRATION HELD ME ENTHRALLED FROM BEGINNING TO END.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I WAS TOTALLY CAUGHT UP IN THE LIVES OF THESE PEOPLE,SHARING EACH HIGH AND LOW MOMENT WITH THEM.

Any additional comments?

A SUPERB SERIES BY A BRILLIANT WRITER,I HOPE THERE WILL BE MORE BOOKS SET IN THIS UNIVERSE IN THE FUTURE.
