With the War treaty signed, the Galactic Fleet is now on permanent stand down. But a treaty doesn't mean an end to the violence, corruption, piracy, or tyranny in the galaxy. The Galactic Fleet's solution is a crack team of Special Ops Marines: Drop Team Zero. Made up of the absolute fighting best from humans, alien races, hybrids, and even AI androids, Drop Team Zero is called on to handle the worst of the worst, missions that others would tag as pure suicide. But when Drop Team Zero arrives, the only threat of suicide is for the ones that stand in their way.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

At 1st I thought it wouldnt be, but after awhile it got better. The begining was a bit confusing trying to understand what is happening and what is going on. I guess a little more backstory and explanation would of helped, but after the first few chapters it smooths out and not so confusing.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting to me was the thought of imprinting of a family members memories into your mind.

Which character – as performed by Cici Kay – was your favorite?

I did like Mairin and her take no bull attitude from her commanding officers.

Could you see Runs in the Family being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I could see it becoming a tv series along the lines of a Star Trek.

P.I. Wyatt Thomas is more than a French Quarter sleuth. Much more. Whenever a new client needs someone to investigate ghosts, possession, or the paranormal and supernatural backside of New Orleans, Wyatt is the person they call. Someone is killing New Orleans street people, and it is affecting the tourist trade in the venerable old city trying to recover from Hurricane Katrina. More than murder, voodoo is involved, the killer possibly an actual Vodoun deity.
