Editorial Reviews

"Rusch’s story is a powerful and engaging exploration of the pitfalls of moral compromise." (SF Gospel

Publisher's Summary

Hadad Yu "recovers" things for a living. Things, not people, not animals. Things. Until he gets in trouble and must work for the alien Gyonnese. They want a person to answer for her crimes, and they want to use Yu to get her. He reluctantly agrees, and sets off events that will change his life and the lives around him forever. A companion piece to Recovery Man, The Recovery Man’s Bargain explores the motivations of one of the stranger characters in the Retrieval Artist universe.

Same story

What was most disappointing about Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s story?

Besides the introduction most of the book repeats the same story than in the previous book "Recovery Man".

Rehash of previous book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is the first thing that I was not happy with from the audible and Rusch

lots of repetition from previous (in series order)

I am a Retrieval Artist fan who only started them last year,so I'm listening in story order, not publication order. Hannan Yu is an interesting character and it was fun getting his take on events in the previous book, but new insights in this book were liberally interspersed with chunks of that one. This should have been a bonus.
