Overview

The short novel that started the entire Retrieval Artist series, The Retrieval Artist introduced Miles Flint to the world. Hugo-nominated, chosen as one of the best stories of the year, The Retrieval Artist created an entire universe, and Flint himself became what io9 calls "one of the top ten science fiction detectives ever."

Part CSI, part Blade Runner, and part hard-boiled gumshoe, the retrieval artist of the series title, one Miles Flint, would be as at home on a foggy San Francisco street in the 1940s as he is in the domed lunar colony of Armstrong City.
-The Edge

It feels like a popular TV series crossed with a Spielberg film-engaging...
-Locus on The Disappeared

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

Although copyrighted in 2010, this novella first appeared in Analog SF magazine in June of 2000. Although the book's pagination indicates the the first page of the story is page #2, and the last page is page #124, there are only 111 pages of story in the book. For whatever reason, some page numbers are simply skipped. The story is the first of a series about a type of "detective" who gets paid to find people who have intentionally "disappeared" at a point in the distant future. It is a good story, but the book isn't free, and it isn't 125 pages long.
