A 38-minute murder mystery

STORY - This is one of my favorite episodes in this series. Scalzi managed to cram a pretty good plot with a twisted ending into 38 minutes, which should be some sort of record. This story takes place on earth (contrary to many of the others) and is about trying to solve the mystery of a murder that took place on a vessel in outer space. As far as I can tell, the story stands alone, but I suppose Scalzi might somehow tie all these short stories together in the final episode.

NARRATOR - Good job but not particularly impressive.

OVERALL - Definitely worth 69 cents and 38 minutes of your time!

Whats Next???

This book is a sequel to "The Observers: Episode 9".. Its an investigation regarding the murderer and how did such a thing happen.
Let me just say that the events in this episode were mind blowing and how such a murder got planned in the first place.

You get to know more about this mysterious party and how intelligent they are.
