Spock Strange

Book finished: The Disappeared

I finished #1 "The Disappeared" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. I rate it a 9.
In a world where humans and aliens coexist, the future can be altered forever.
In a world where murder is sanctioned, the rules of humanity no longer apply.
In a world where no one can guarantee safe haven, one man has found a job.
Retrieval Artist help the lost find their way back home...whether they like it or not. Specialized private detectives, they investigate the most unusual crimes in the galaxy. But Miles Flint isn't a Retrieval Artist. he's just a cop, trying to do his job.
In a stolen space yacht, three people have been found eviscerated - the grisly signature of an alien vengeance killing. Moments later, the border patrol halts another ship launched out of the moon's orbit - its passengers are two human children, kidnapped by the most ruthless aliens in the universe. Both ships are linked to a woman on the run - a Disappeared relocated to the inhospitable landscape of Mars. A reluctant outlaw with a bounty on her head and a detective on her case, she's about to teach all of them a lesson: It's dangerous to gamble with your life in a universe that rigs the game.

Currently reading absolutely nothing. I've finished, gave up on, or put away everything else and am ready to start the Honor Harrington book. However, I don't know if I work tonight yet or not so I don't want to start it yet. I'll be starting #2 "Extremes" by Kristine Kathryn Rusch at work and #18 "Little Knell" by Catherine Aird at home
