I had listened to the 2nd-4th books of this series (which can be read in pretty much any order) and came to this one last mostly because it did not have the same reader. This book is OK- a good mystery with interesting back story. The subsequent books, however, are much better. They are told from the perspective of Chase (the "sidekick") and the reader of those is great. They all involve search for historical artifacts, adventures, and a bit of sleuthing so there is a lot of information on the fictional history of their (future) society as they go about their investigations. Fun SF.
I do enjoy this series quite a bit. I agree with others that the reader is a little lacking. I do not have a problem with a man reading a woman's part (but I do miss the former reader!) but I do not like his consistent long pause before saying "I said" or "he said." It's a little robotic.
