Published: June 13th 2008 [FREE July 10th to 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.
While you’re in the Audible catalogue you should also consider getting the Hugo Award nominated novella that gave this series its name…
The Retrieval Artist, was put out by Deuce Audio (owned by my buddy Scott) and is narrated by the incomparable Stefan Rudnicki. This tale is the true origin of the Retrieval Artist brand. It’s a two hour treat for only $3.49! GET THAT HERE

Retrieval Artists find people who have disappeared. But people disappear for a reason: they don’t want to be found. When Anetka Sobol shows up at Miles Flint’s office on the Moon, he immediately knows that this case is going to be complicated.
And, last but not least, I’ve begun a KRISTINE KATHRYN RUSCH author page, which attempts to round up all the KKR audio that’s out there.
