A Retrieval Artist looks for people who have Disappeared. The Disappeared are outlaws on the run, wanted for crimes against alien cultures. An alien law may seem silly to humans but the punishment for breaking that law can end in death...horribly and slowly.
Paloma is the woman who taught Miles Flint almost everything he knows about being a Retrieval Artist. A great series and I'm looking forward to reading it. It may not be a must drop everything to read right now book but it's close!
The 2nd book of Charlaine Harris's Harper Connelly series is also coming. She's been able to find dead people ever since she survived being hit by lightning. This is from the author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, the mind-reading waitress with a vampire boyfriend.
I'm still waiting on Terrier by Tamora Pierce which should have been released before Paloma. :(
