The Inheritors: John Grimes, Book 6 | [A. Bertram Chandler]

The Inheritors: John Grimes, Book 6

He was a cunning, ruthless opportunist who paid when he had to and stole when he could - but never when there was the slightest chance of getting caught. That's what had John Grimes worried: Here was Kane directly under the watchful eyes - and guns - of a Federation Survey vessel, openly engaging in kidnapping and trafficking in human flesh! Despite the fact that the beautiful inhabitants of this Lost Colony faced a fate worse than death, a more cautious - or less gallant - officer would do nothing - secure in the knowledge that regardless of appearances there would be some loophole that placed the Law squarely on Kane's side.

Publisher's Summary

He was a cunning, ruthless opportunist who paid when he had to and stole when he could - but never when there was the slightest chance of getting caught. That's what had John Grimes worried: Here was Kane directly under the watchful eyes - and guns - of a Federation Survey vessel, openly engaging in kidnapping and trafficking in human flesh!

Despite the fact that the beautiful inhabitants of this Lost Colony faced a fate worse than death, a more cautious - or less gallant - officer would do nothing - secure in the knowledge that regardless of appearances there would be some loophole that placed the Law squarely on Kane's side. But Grimes, being Grimes, would have to act - knowing full well that to "interfere with a merchantmen on her lawful occasions" meant a blasted career...and knowing too that Drongo Kane never broke the law....

    Story
    "A Lost Colony with human sized CATS"
    What did you love best about The Inheritors?

    Shows what can happen to explorers when they have accidents that destroy part of what is needed to survive.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Inheritors?

    When Maggie enters Grimes' cabin after a episode with two of the survivoring women (CATS).


    What about Aaron Abano’s performance did you like?

    Inflection of his voice while reading that puts you right into the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Book 6 (1972) of John Grimes' career. Suggested reading of 'Grimes Among the Gourmets' (1978) between Book 5 'Spartan Planet' and this one.
