Rusch is a great storyteller who can hold a reader's attention from start to finish. This high-tech detective story, part of the Retrieval Artist series, has hard science fiction, a complex whodunit and a fascinating look at alien bureaucracy. All the elements for an entertaining story are here: well-drawn, believable characters with frailties and flaws, credible scientific theory and authentic-feeling settings.
Rhonda Shindo and her daughter Talia live on Jupiter's moon, Callisto. One day, as Rhonda leaves her job at Aleyd Corporation, she walks into a trap. A mysterious Recovery Man locks Talia in a closet and abducts Rhonda at her front door. Authorities begin a massive search, but Rhonda's ex-husband, Miles Flint, is conducting his own investigation -- and every trail leads back to Aleyd and an old crime that could change Talia's life forever. (ROC, Sep., 384 pp., $6.99)
