Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Following The Disappeared, this novel continues the Retrieval Artist series that is based on Rusch's Hugo-nominated novella, The Retrieval Artist. Now Miles Flint, a former detective, has taken over Paloma's business, living the solitary life of a Retrieval Artist. Working for families and insurance companies, Flint searches for those on the run from the legal system but does not reveal identities or give information to anyone other than his clients on a "disappeared's" whereabouts. When a powerful attorney visits Flint and begs him to take a case, Flint has no idea that the research will lead him to a murder at the highly publicized and popular Moon Marathon. Flint is intrigued by the case involving another Retrieval Artist who allegedly died due to a dangerous flu virus. Frieda Tey, a scientist once accused of the deaths of a group of humans in a viral experiment, is suspected of unleashing this same highly contagious, deadly virus at the Moon Marathon. Also at the marathon, Tracker Miriam Oliviari, who has been searching for Frieda Tey for years, finally believes that she has found her prey while Detective Noelle DeRicci, Flint's former partner, investigates the death of a young woman at the same event. Suspense builds effectively as time elapses with characters becoming infected and the threat of death so imminent. The plot moves smoothly as chapters alternate between Flint's investigation, Oliviari's medical research and tracking, and DeRicci's involvement with her coworkers while handling the Moon Marathon investigation on site. Readers of police procedurals as well as fans of SF should enjoy this mystery series. This novel is definitely recommended for fans of theseries but will stand alone for those who have not read the previous novel or novella. The next Retrieval Artist title is scheduled for an April 2004 release. KLIATT Codes: SA-Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Penguin, Roc, 373p., Ages 15 to adult.

    Excellnt sf mystey

    In the far distant future, mankind has treaties with at least fifty alien species because Earth and her colonies want to trade with them, humanity is subject to their laws. If a person has run afoul of an alien species and doesn¿t want to be held accountable under alien law, they disappear. Retrieval Artist Miles Flint, based in the Armstrong Dome on the moon, searches for the Disappeared for matters they left unfinished but don¿t hand them in to the law.<P> People, agencies and governments hire trackers to find the disappeared and hand them over the proper authorities. Tracker Miran Oliviari has come to the Moon Marathon run outside the dome to see if she can find Frieda Tey in her new identity as a business entrepreneur. She is wanted for the murder for the killing of many people in a scientific experiment gone awry. Before the Tracker can confront her prey, police detective Noelle Ricci investigates the murder of a marathon runner that Oliviari believes was Tey. Flint comes into the scenario when a client hires him to find Tey; a job that almost gets him killed when he figures out who she really is and where she is going.<P> Unlike the first book in this series, THE DISAPPEARED, there are no aliens residing on the pages of this novel. This is a medical thriller police procedural set in the future with humans judging their own. The antagonist of Extremes uses smoke and mirrors to conduct an illegal and unethical scientific experiment and in the confession, disappears. Only one person will find her and the person who blinks first will die.<P> Harriet Klausner
