At least that's what everyone thought. But somehow, mysteriously, that dreadful substance was back in circulation on Repler and threatening to wreak havoc throughout the known galaxy. Someone somewhere was secretly manufacturing Bloodhype, but nobody seemed to know where or who!

This is a very nice entry in the Pip & Flinx series. The characters are colorful and the story, though quite convoluted, is satisfying.
I love listening to a good book. However, I also own the paperbacks as well and love to read them when I have time. Over and over again.
Kitten because she was daring and adventurous.
He gave the characters life with the different voices.
Yes, I listened to the entire book one night at work.
I long time fan of the Pip and Flinx Adventures, I was delighted to see that audible would add the entire series. What was even better is that that would retain continuity by having Stefan Rudnicki read the entire series. I enjoyed this book in particular, as it is less serious than the others and has a definite homorous slant to it. A relaxing enjoyable adventure.
I wish Audible mentioned that this was actually the 11th book in the series. It may have been the 2nd written but its not in the correct order.
Flinx was hardly in it

A Great Story but more about the Police than Pip and Flinx. This was the second book written to include Pip and Flinx. I did enjoy the description of the Tar-Aiym in this book.
Good read for a stand alone story.
Much like Trouble Magnet, Bloodhype is a story set in the same Universe as Flinx, and he appears in the book, but little of the story involves him. It seems like ADF added Flinx as an afterthought. I have half-an-hour left to listen to, and there hasn't been one thing done by Flinx that couldn't have been done by another character.
Otherwise, the story is OK. Not particularly riveting, but not a bad listen.
The Pip and Flinx series is wonderful, and I was looking forward to revisiting my favorites in audio, but Stefan Rudnicki is absolutely the wrong narrator for these books. Bloodhype is my favorite novel in the series, definitely worth five stars, but the deep, stilted narration kept me from listening past chapter one. Since Rudnicki narrates the whole series, I will not be wasting any more credits. It's too bad that Alan Dean Foster's fantastic characters and writing are ruined in the audiobooks.
This book was a real disappointment for me, after reading the previous books. The main female character was incredibly attractive but otherwise a foolish, impulsive, just plain annoying person to read about. I don't know if being a woman makes it worse, but perhaps so. In addition, this is a pivotal book about Flinx and he is so peripheral and the book is written looking at him from without rather than within. I was left wanting to know what had happened to him during the story, even when the full book was finished. And I knew way more than I wanted to know about the dingy female character. Oh well, keep reading. The next book is back on course.
