Dan Delgado is a private investigator. He’s unenthusiastic, and unmatched. As a former San Francisco detective, he misses more meaningful work, but he hasn’t had the heart for it since his wife’s death five years prior. That is, until a phone call from a distraught mother, an illegal immigrant who can’t go to the police, puts him on the hunt for a missing little girl. By the time he reaches the mother’s small home, she’s missing, too. Then a team of heavily armed mercenaries arrive. Delgado and crew are plunged into a dangerous world of corporate competition, UFO lore, and government cover-ups.

Just as I thought this series couldn't possibly get any better, yet again I'm proved wrong. The characters and storyline forces you with very little coercion to invest the time to take an active interest in what is going to happen next. Thoroughly enjoyable! 10 out of 5!

The members of the Polaris Project knew what they were giving up when they volunteered to fly to the star named Angel-21, but the allure of being the first explorers to leave the Solar System far outweighed the risks. As it turned out, the most dangerous thing they faced wasn't the mission, it was the homecoming. Eight hundred years have passed, and Earth is nothing like they thought it would be.

I have several of the authors books in my collection, but this was not as good as the others I have. I felt detached from the characters he created, which is unusual, but that is my opinion. Preview and make up your own mind. 1/5

The Tyrell are a race that love to fight. The more difficult the fight, the better they like it. Every race they find is given the same level of technology and a specific amount of time to exploit it before the Tyrell come back looking for a fight. Humanity is warned by another alien species that the Tyrell are coming, and the race is on to build an Alliance of races strong enough to stand up against an empire whose expansion has been relentless.

Initially cautious, I thought I'd give this a chance, as I like the narrator's voices. Disregarding any link to voices he has used for other book series, I listened anyway, and confirm that the storyline is well worth the listen and proved to capture my attention. 5/5

After saving a mysterious young woman named Ollie from the clutches of something big, slimy, and unpleasant, Dan gets entangled in a missing child case.

As a stand-alone book, and I assume and hope, series, the characters are awesome and I am really looking forward to the next in the series. The Irish dudes profanity had me actually smiling and laughing out loud, as the delivery of these lines by the narrator was flawless. The only downside for me, was that being a fan of the awesome Space Team series, the voice for Dan was the same as Mechs, but do not let that make you miss out on a great listening opportunity. 10 out of 5!

This is high action, ideas driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance. Takeshi Kovacs has come home. Home to Harlan's World. An ocean planet with only 5 percent of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Try and get above the weather in anything more sophisticated than a helicopter and the Martian orbital platforms will burn you out of the sky. And death doesn't just wait for you in the seas and the skies.

Four hundred years from now mankind is strung out across a region of interstellar space inherited from an ancient civilization discovered on Mars. The colonies are linked together by the occasional sublight colony ship voyages and hyperspatial data-casting. Human consciousness is digitally freighted between the stars and downloaded into bodies as a matter of course.

It has been such a long time since a book or TV series has captured my attention so fully. If they had more stars for the ratings here, I would max them out. Story 5/5, audio recording 3/5 as I found it slightly annoying that you can tell when another 'take' was spliced in, like a cassette tape being stopped and started. Looking forward to the next book.
