    The mining ship El Cavador is far out from Earth, in the deeps of the Kuiper Belt, beyond Pluto. Other mining ships, and the families that live on them, are few and far between this far out. So when El Cavador’s telescopes pick up a fast-moving object coming in-system, it’s hard to know what to make of it. It’s massive and moving at a significant fraction of the speed of light.

    El Cavador has other problems. Their systems are old and failing. The family is getting too big for the ship. There are claim-jumping corporate ships bringing Asteroid Belt tactics to the Kuiper Belt.

    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed most of the Ender's series, this collection should not disappoint; It just so happens that all the books are not out yet, so it's the waiting game.Yes the book is leading to the first war, so that is kind of publisher over sight that gets in the covers' way. But will be looking forward to the next book - whenever that might be. I would go to say this book was short, but then looked at the play time and it is normal for most books I listen to.Guess that just means I really enjoyed it.

    A burnout at 35, months behind on his book, low on cash, and something of a loser, Eddie Spinola could use a shot in the arm. One day he randomly runs into Vernon, his ex-wife’s brother, and his ex-dealer. Now employed by a shadowy pharmaceutical company, Vernon has something that might help: a new designer drug that stimulates brain function. One pill and Eddie is hooked. His book is finished within days; he learns and synthesizes information at a frightening rate; and he can go a long time without sleep or food.

    Story

    I purchased the book already watching the movie and as with most the book is way better then the movie. The ending was much more plausible. I could not wait for the ride home to listen to the whole way thru the book. The reader gets you into the story and keeps you going. I have already recommended the book to a few friends and would do the same for you reading this review.

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Tom says: "Excellent Story, Distracting Sound Engineering"
    "Good Story - Great reader"
    Overall

    Its almost like an action story with out all the bangs. Marsters does a Great job of conveying the feelings in the story. The wonder the breaks the joy is all very well done. Jim's writing enables this detective story to be told in this manor.
