Summary

Roland Tankowicz hates Venus. The last time he went there, he died. So, no one could really blame him if he never went back.

Nevertheless, when a squad of Venusian assassins ruins date night, everybody's least-favorite Army-surplus cyborg decides to take a trip to Earth's sister planet and have a sit-down with an infamous group of terrorists.

Perhaps it's because he really likes date night. Maybe he just wants to keep the promise he once made to a troubled young man. It is even conceivable that he might still have a heap of unresolved issues with the separatists who blew his body apart years ago. For whatever reason, the big man and his motley crew of misfits strap on their guns and hurl themselves into murky world of interplanetary terrorism.

To his dismay, Roland discovers that Venus has changed since his last visit. The black-and-white politics of the fanatics and governments he remembers have now merged into complicated shades of gray. Cyborg killers walk the halls without fear, and the soldiers stationed there seem no better than the thugs they fight. The sweltering underworld of Venus holds terrors and trials that will test the old soldier in ways he is not prepared for, while a crafty assassin stalks them all from shadows both real and imagined.

The team must to walk a narrow path between terrorists, soldiers, and their own dark pasts if they expect to get out of this one alive. Is The Fixer strong enough to pull an entire population from the ashes of civil war?

If he isn't, they may all drown in a flood of: Aphrodite's Tears.

Fly ball..

Not as good as the prior 3 books, rather uninspired. Wish the author had taken a step back and considered this book some more. Some inconsistencies along with some repetitions that hurts the immersion and flow of the story for the listener/reader.

Good as always

As of this time there is only two books left in this series. I have really enjoyed all of them so far, and really, really hope there will be more, someday.
