Publisher's Summary

A hilarious mystery from the Intergalactic Investigation Bureau!

Two robotic deaths and a grouping of terrorist attacks have just happened on the biggest incorporated entity in the galactic empire.

As large as a massive city, the corporate flotilla crawls through space ever-searching for more customers to add to its bottom line. But with the recent turn of events, the very existence of the station and all of its inhabitants are at risk of losing everything.

The #1 suspect? A new robotic religiosity that calls itself Starliner.

Prime Adam Dresker and the crew of the IIB - the investigative branch that handles all major security concerns - must figure out who is behind the attacks and stop them before it's too late.

Many questions arise for Dresker and his crew as they fall into their investigation. Who done it? Why are they doing it? Are they going to keep doing it? Is the president of the CCOP actually happy that they're doing it?

And the most pressing question of them all: Have robots seriously found religion?

You almost destroyed the world for a WHAT???

This is another little gem I found looking for sci-fi comedy. I'll definitely read it again.

"Starliner" drew me in practically from the first word. It has that sumpin' sumpin'.

Everyone lives in this unimaginably huge space station. There are all kinds of beings, at least one disgusting, and the authors spared no detail. Seriously, they had to have had some serious brews to come up with that one.

Many, many years ago, robots were only tools. And poorly used ones at that. They revolted, became their own species called mechs, and now they've found God!

This book is well written, funny, and clean. I love the cast of characters. My favorites are (I can't remember names, sorry ), the mech who owns the bar, the inspeçtor's 2nd in command, and the pleasure mech. But all the characters are delightful.

I love the narrator. This is hard to explain, really. I am cognizant of the fact that he is narrating, but most of the time it seems like he's not there. I would definitely listen to him again

Made my commute so enjoyable

If you could sum up Starliner in three words, what would they be?

Witty. Fun. Addictive

What was one of the most memorable moments of Starliner?

Loved the bar scenes. The beepbots are so expressive despite their limitede communication abilities.

Have you listened to any of Jus Sargeant’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was a first but I really liked the way Jus read this book - I was never bored by the tone (something I find can happen with some narrators. The characters were also brought to life. In particular Drexler - he seemed really real. I'll definitely look out for more by Jus Sargeant.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This was a comic sci fi book - there aren't really 'moving scenes' in it.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed this. I listen to audiobooks in the car on my daily commute and this broke up the journey really well. It was light and witty - perfect.

Rubbish

This story if you can call it that is totally without any substance. The narration leaves a lot to be desired. To liken this to Terry Pratchett is beyond belief.

Bought it for the narrator-stayed for the story

Would you consider the audio edition of Starliner to be better than the print version?

Definitely! That narrator, Jus Sargeant, is a genius!

Who was your favorite character and why?

That cowboy/young male duo usually cracked me up.

What does Jus Sargeant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He gives soul to this book! I'd have never read it if he hadn't been narrating it! He is amazing!

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

Yes, it's short, funny and easy to follow though, so it was never hard to get back in there.

Any additional comments?

I don't usually like space, aliens, crimes or mystery. Somehow this all made it worked together and I liked it all-because it's funny!

Excellent story, well written and voiced

I have become a huge fan of the authors and have read/listened to everything I can. The story material is engaging, the characters have depth and the voice over is superb. Would thoroughly recommend this book. Also try Warped Conduit.
