Mars at Midnight is the next in the series of Ace Sloan Mysteries. The Martian atmosphere will kill you instantly if you are subjected to it. This is also what some of the people inside the colonies are wishing for too. They want it bad enough to kill. Detective Sloan and his new partner Kate Hammer will try to solve a new mystery in this new short story.
The narration was done by Leslie Starr O’Hara who does a wonderful job narrating as the main female character in this short story. O’Hara also is able to capture Detective Ace Sloan’s character pretty well. I’m always intrigued when I see a female narrator for a male drive book — but this one actually ended up being split more than I realized. O’Hara does a great job and I will definitely be looking for more books narrated by her. The quality of the recording was also really well done, I listened on headphones and heard zero mistakes.
I’ve read all of the Ace Sloan Mars Mystery books and none of them have let me down. Like a real old-school “whodunit” just when you think you know who the killer is, the plot takes a turn. Graham has a wonderful way of mixing the old school mystery novels into a new and fun Martian climate.
Sloan is the perfect “gumshoe” detective using old school methods and thoughts to solve murders while in this story, his new rookie sidekick Kate Hammer adds a young and new perspective to the whole thing. I like Sloan, but I found myself really enjoying Hammer even more. She is one of those caring yet carefree characters that I find myself falling for in novels.
