The Disappeared - Kristine Kathryn Rusch $4.99 (US) [SciFi] (Amazon/BN/Smashwords)

Quote:
Product Description
New York Times bestselling author Orson Scott Card calls the Retrieval Artist series “some of the best science fiction ever written.” Io9 says Miles Flint is one of “the top ten greatest science fiction detectives of all time.” The Disappeared is Flint’s very first adventure, the story that turns him from a police detective in the Armstrong Dome on the Moon into a Retrieval Artist.

In a universe where humans and aliens have formed a loose government called the Earth Alliance, treaties guarantee that humans are subject to alien laws when on alien soil. But alien laws often make no sense, and the punishments vary from loss of life to loss of a first-born child.

Now three cases have collided: a stolen spaceyacht filled with dead bodies, two kidnapped human children, and a human woman on the run, trying to Disappear to avoid alien prosecution. Flint must enforce the law—giving the children to aliens, solving the murders, and arresting the woman for trying to save her own life. But how is a man supposed to enforce laws that are unjust? How can he sacrifice innocents to a system he’s not sure he believes in? How can Miles Flint do the right thing in a universe where the right thing is very, very wrong?

International bestselling writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch has won two Hugo awards, a World Fantasy Award, and three Asimov’s Readers Choice Awards. IO9 called her six (so far) bestselling, award-winning Retrieval Artist novels one of the top ten science fiction detective series ever.

This is really good to listen to as an audiobook. Bit of an older title, but the author is too good not to read. Speaking of whom, when do the Hugo and Nebula noms come out this year?

You're welcome!

I hate browsing Smashwords, but if I know a book is there, I'll definitely go there first. I love the idea that if I change readers down the road, it's likely that I'll still be able to read the books I purchased on my new gadget! Plus, what the heck - I believe the authors get a better cut of the profits there, too.
