The Disappeared - free audiobook @ Audible

Until July 24, you can download The Disappeared: Retrieval Artist, Book 1 (Unabridged) by Kristine Kathryn Rusch at Audible as a free audio book.

Quote:
Publisher's Summary

SPECIAL OFFER: We think you'll love Kristine Kathryn Rusch's Retrieval Artist series. And to prove it, we're giving away The Disappeared free! Please hurry. This book will return to full price on July 24, 2008.

Retrieval artists 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.
You need an account before you can download the book.

Looks good, Tad! I am not much of a book listener, but at this price I will give it a shot!

I'll try it, I've never been interested in listening to books because I can read so much faster.

Thanks for posting this. I kept skipping this thread because Audible doesn't usually offer free books to existing customers (unless it's a referral bonus). This is a first for me.

Agreed... Audible books are for those times when you can't read. Like driving, running, mowing the lawn, washing dishes, etc.

it appears that audible books require the audible player be installed - guess i'll pass on this one. i have more than enough players and readers of various things installed here already

I think you don't need that if you use iTunes to buy your books.

As BOb pointed out, you can play audible content on iTunes, it will also play through Windows Media Player, a Palm device, some Mobile phones and can be streamed directly from your Media Library at Audible. It also plays on about a zillion mp3 players.
