Publisher's Summary

It's dangerous to get too close to one of those damn Longknife. So Senior Chief Agent in Charge Foile volunteers to get too damn close to the whole family of Longknifes. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Kris Longknife feared the survival of the entire human race might hang on what her Grampa Al did next – but she couldn’t figure out what he was up to. After a career in the Wardhaven Bureau of Investigations, Foile was good at finding out what others wanted to keep hidden. Exactly why he found himself volunteering, he'd never know, but soon he was spending his annual leave digging into what the powerful Longknife family wanted hidden and up to his neck in trouble of every kind. Note about cover photo. This is a file photo of Kris and Nelly when she was in college on the political stump for her father's campaign. For the latest photo of Kris, check out Kris Longknife - Defender.

Background information

This is a companion novella #10.5 and is set at the same time as “Furious” #10. The brief story follows the efforts of Senior Agent in Charge Foile of the Wardhaven Bureau of Investigation. Agent Foile is assisting Kris in her efforts to stop her grandfather’s trade flotilla. In book #10 “Furious” agent Foile was the head agent trying to capture Kris. This story sort of provides the information as to why Wardhaven Navy helped fund Kris’s new ship. This story provides some background about Grandfather Al and filler information about the Flotilla.

This trend in authors publishing novella inserted into their ongoing series is becoming very popular. Some of the novellas do provide some interesting background information but the information could have been added to the story if it is important. I have not made up my mind if reading these novellas maybe helpful to me as a reader in obtaining a broader view of the story or just a waste of time and money. Dina Pearlman narrated the story.

I love the story and narration, but...

I love the story and narration, but $10 for three hours is too much. You should reduce this to $3 to $4. it will not save me any money, but some other people will be able to enjoy the side story.

Nice short story

This SHORT story is one of those that fills in the characters in the Chris Longknife series. It is interesting if a little light. Not much on the characters development like some of the best of this type of story. Probably not worth a book credit. But, not a bad way to kill a little time today while I was waiting in the airport.
