RT Book Reviews Reviewers Award Choice Nominee for Best Science Fiction Novel of the Year.
“Rusch continues her provocative interplanetary detective series with healthy doses of planet-hopping intrigue, heady legal dilemmas and well-drawn characters.”
When she arrives home from school on Callisto, Talia Shindo finds two strange men in her house. They terrorize her, and kidnap her mother. The men leave Talia behind. She’s thirteen, brilliant, and determined to find her missing mother.
Retrieval Artist Miles Flint works a seemingly unrelated case, digging into files left him by his mentor. Only he finds a connection to the Shindo kidnapping, a connection that shatters everything he ever knew.
The two cases collide, changing Flint, changing Talia, and changing the universe around them—forever.
“This high-tech detective story, part of the Retrieval Artist series, has hard science fiction, a complex whodunit and a fascinating look at alien bureaucracy. All the elements for an entertaining story are here: well-drawn, believable characters with frailties and flaws, credible scientific theory, and authentic-feeling settings.”

A Real Gem in the Rough
I picked this book up on a lark, not really expecting much. The book was surprisingly good, it was a real page turner. The book is supposed to be hard boiled, but in my mind it was just a good suspense thriller.
The ending was a little flat and left several unanswered questions. I didn't realize it, but this is six of the series of seven books. I'm coming into the story towards the end. Even with that, it's very good and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm going to have to go back and start at the very beginning and work my way back through to catch up.
