Richard K. Morgan has received widespread praise for his astounding 25th-century novels featuring Takeshi Kovacs, and has established a growing legion of fans. Mixing classic noir sensibilities with a searing futuristic vision of an age when death is nearly meaningless, Morgan returns to his saga of betrayal, mystery, and revenge, as Takeshi Kovacs, in one fatal moment, joins forces with a mysterious woman who may have the power to shatter Harlan's World forever.

I'm sure the narrator is very nice...

But after the first two books being so well done, I couldn't even get through the prologue of this one. I know it was probably the director's idea to use the reverb, so I won't hold that against William Dufris...but did you really mispronounce 'Kovacs'? I'll never know because the series ended with the last book as far as I'm concerned.

When Britain intercepted a French ship and its precious cargo, an unhatched dragon's egg, Captain Will Laurence of HMS Reliant unexpectedly became master and commander of the noble dragon he named Temeraire.

But now China has discovered that its rare gift, intended for Napoleon, has fallen into British hands, and an angry Chinese delegation vows to reclaim the remarkable beast.

I verified with Audible's folks that the stream had been fixed before downloading the files. They assured me it was but I remained skeptical. I just finished listening and all is well. Thank you Audible!
