    As a Retrieval Artist, Miles Flint helps the Disappeared, saving the lives of those oppressed under the Earth Alliance regime. He owes his livelihood and his very sense of honor to a woman known as Paloma. It was she who was responsible for setting him on this path. And now she has been murdered.

    Overall

    Since the first book in the retrieval artist series (The Disappeared), I was impressed by the thoroughness of the plot line. The technical aspects of a moon based dome life, as well as on other planets are very well thought out. Then there are the aliens, of which the author has done well to go outside the cliche format of humanoids only, and provided serious thought to the impact of how these would behave based on her predetermined definitions. I applaud the thoroughness of the series as a whole.

    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.

    Overall

    I heard this short story (written before the novel series), after listening to the first 5 novels. I was very impressed with the compatibility the author maintained with the other books. This story (from a storyline perspective) falls somewhere between "The Disappeared" and "Consequences". This story is read by a different narrator than the novels (so don't be surprised by the different pronunciation of names). All-in-all, the same attention to details and surprises found in the rest of the books - I love this series, and she just came out with a seventh...
