Rico has a problem. The experimental program that gave him the high intelligence and lightning reflexes he needs as a hit man for a galactic crime syndicate left him incapable of internalizing moral imperatives the rest of us take for granted. It takes real effort for him to pass as a normal human being and he avoids it whenever he can. But he has a job he loves, a fast ship, and plenty of cash. So life is good.

This is one of those rare stories I read over and over. The narrator delivers each line in a deadpan way that sets the perfect tone. I guess it's not a comedy but there are parts where I laugh out loud every time I listen. I really cared about and to my horror related to the main character who is a self described "sociopath". I mean his relating to others, not the hit man part. I don't know what the authors personal views on Christianity are but he was accurate in his depiction of what we're at least supposed to be like. It may be the only modern story I've read that did that. Don't be scared off because a Christian liked the book. I'm not a very good one and there's lots of bombs, guns, fights, and spaceships. I listen at least twice every year.

Meet Phluttr - a diabolically addictive new social network and a villainess, heroine, enemy, and/or bestie to millions. Phluttr has ingested every fact and message ever sent to, from, and about her innumerable users. Her capabilities astound her makers - and they don't even know the tenth of it. But what's the purpose of this stunning creation? Is it a front for something even darker and more powerful than the NSA?

You need to listen to this. I just finished the book. More capable people will write better reviews soon. I want to do what I can to help this story get heard. Story, production, and performances were among the best I've heard and I've listened to more than 350 audible titles. Awesome job!

On a sullen, cloudy July day ten years since 7/7, the happy, confident and optimistic British Prime Minister is visiting a charity in East London. It’s just two months after the general election which saw John Campbell's government returned to power with a clear majority, the economy is on the mend and the coalition is fast becoming a bad memory. Suddenly, a man appears out of the crowd and shoots him three times in the chest.

Any additional comments?

I don't mind books that lean left or right in terms of political perspective. This story was just too much. I felt like I was listening to a propaganda piece for the left. If I hadn't bought it as a daily deal I would have requested my first refund since joining Audible over ten years ago.
