Overview

A woman dies in the domed city of Armstrong on the Moon. Detective Noelle DeRicci discovers that the victim is a Disappeared�an outlaw in hiding wanted for crimes against an alien civilization. Only DeRicci�s old partner, Retrieval Artist Miles Flint brought the Disappeared home, something he would have only done if he believed the alien government would exonerate her for her crimes.

But Flint and DeRicci are no longer partners; in fact, they�re on opposite sides of the law. Flint can�t tell DeRicci about his client�s role in a war between humans and a mysterious alien race. The Disappeared�s death is only the first volley in an escalation of that war, a war that threatens to engulf the entire solar system.

Rusch mounts hard-boiled noir on an expansive sf background with great panache.
�Booklist

Part science fiction, part mystery, and pure enjoyment are the words to describe Kristine Kathryn Rusch�s latest Retrieval Artist novel.�This is a strong murder mystery in an outer space storyline.
�The Best Reviews

Mixing interstellar politics and police procedural, Rusch turns out a satisfying SF mystery. Flint�s internal conflicts are deftly portrayed, and the gritty realism of the murder investigation meshes well with the alien setting. This [third] entry in the Retrieval Artist series should please SF and mystery fans alike, and can be read independently.
