Publisher's Summary

The adventure continues for Lieutenant Joan Chikage of the USS Goodall.

Surely, after all she'd gone through, he couldn't mean to put her back in the same boring assignment.

Even if it was important in some way, she was done with that job. And ready for something else.

She'd commanded a small troop of men since then. Led the survivors to safety. Quelled the mutiny. Discovered the murderer. She'd even brought in Van der Ryn so he could pay for his crimes. Accidently or not, it didn't matter.

The captain must know all of this by now. She'd kept everyone alive when they probably should have died.

Except for Leichter. And Praetor. And Running Wolf.

She'd saved the cat, damn it!

The Goodall Manifest is book two in the Goodall series of science fiction mysteries.

A wild and complex heroine in a crazy plot

Hmmm, not your typical spacer story, not your typical heroine and sometimes very confusing. in spite of this it is an interesting listen. The narrator does a good job of hold the story together.

Episodes not novels

This is an interesting piece of sci fi. It is written as stream of consciousness. You get to know the narrator of the story by hearing her every confused thought. And there is plenty of confusion. Perhaps I’d had understood more if I’d listened to the first installment? The action picked up right in the middle of events and ended the same way - I just hate cliff. This was definitely one of those... but somehow it wasn’t ... I guess because it didn’t feel like the action peaked in a climax... it just kinda kept going.

It’s hard to tell friend from foe. And random elements of attraction get a lot of focus. So too do flashbacks, making the consciousness both more realistic and more confusing.

One thing for sure: no mysteries were solved here!

The narrator did a great job of breathlessly rushing along through choppy Rubin sentences and startling changes.

No sex. No or very little harsh language.
Very vivid, frequent and disturbing descriptions of smells. Like repeatedly. No pleasant smells.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.
