Critic Reviews

"Rusch has a knack for creating interesting characters and a future that moves and breathes." (The PhiladelphiaWeekly Press)
"Top 10 Greatest Science Fiction Detective Novels of all Time." (io9.com)
"Here's Rusch's genius: She doesn't confine herself to the rules of any one genre. She does world-creation and social criticism like the best sci-fi writers; she creates crime stories that would be best episodes on Law & Order or CSI; and she creates stories of human relationships that rank her with the finest character writers working today." (Orson Scott Card)

I hope there will be more.

I've listened to all 6 books in the Retrieval Artist series and enjoyed them all. The characters are interesting and easy to come to care about, despite their flaws. The futuristic story line is interesting, but still believable. The narrator does a great job, too. I hope there will be more in this series.

I want more!

I have just finished this book and have listened to the other five. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book. The characters are supportive to the main character "Miles Flint". He has become a friend of mine. I am caught up to the last. I'm gonna miss him. I recomend this book for many ages. Easy listening with enough grip to keep you intrested.
