Summary

Leave no man behind. 

On Detron, a simmering protest boils over and turns deadly when militants hiding among the demonstrators deliberately shoot down a group of legionnaires, executing one survivor and taking two for ransom. The only Republic asset the captured leejes can rely on is a lone marine sniper who defies orders in a desperate attempt to save them.   

But a troubled sea of hostile riots, looting, and murder is too much for anyone to navigate safely.  

Except Tyrus Rechs. Following a trail that links the riots and deaths to a demagogue known in the underground as Madame Guillotine, the bounty hunter must fight his way above, beneath, and through the sweltering city to bring the prisoners back home…and make those responsible pay.   

Join the adventure as Tyrus Rechs stops at nothing to take down a nefarious conspiracy before it has a chance to take root in the very Republic that wants him dead.

They just keep getting better!

Certainly the best book of the series so far.
While book 2 was a little disappointing compared to the first one (Requiem For Medusa) , this takes the story up another level.
I won't bore you with details, I will just say - get it!
A special mention to Ray Porter also. Picking up after RC Bray (who did the Galay's Edge series) was a thankless task but he has brought his own style to the narration and really impressed me. Well done.

Tyrus Rechs 🙁

I love the GE books and I enjoyed Rechs character in those books (brief as it was ) but that was with RC Bray narrating and I have been greatly disappointed by Ray Porters narration, I have purchased all 3 Rechs standalone books on Audible and then had to get the kindle version because I can’t get past the first few chapters

Performance, story, perfect. Audio, wtf.

I love everything about the story and performance and won't right a huge blah blah about that. But what's with the intermediate audio volume drop. Why. What editor didn't catch that. I've downloaded and listened to it on 3 separate phones along with 5 separate Bluetooth devices. Then re-downloaded it on each to try again. Really?

Okay but....

I generally like Anspach and Cole along with the Galaxy’s Edge universe they’ve created. However, I wish they’d lay off the overly long,introspective self analysis each character seems to engage in. A little for character development is good but we don’t need half a chapter of self indulgent meandering of thoughts when a paragraph will do.

Great story, some audio issues

The story was excellent, definitely worth a relisten to on down the road, but there were some issues with the audio, namely there are dB drops, noticeable but not breaking.

Bad audio or disinterested narrator?

I love the series and I’m a Ray Porter fan, but I feel like this performance wasn’t his best. At times when you should feel excitement the performance is bland and I’d doze off or day dream then rewind to see what I’d missed. After about the 8th time I stopped rewinding and just kept going.

Also the audio fades in and out. I deleted the copy of it on my phone, downloaded it on a different device and still had the same issues. Tried different headphones or none at all, same issues.

A little heavy handed and repetitious

Let me start by saying I really like this universe, and Rex is one of my favorite characters in it. It's been clear from the start what the author's political views are. We agree and disagree on different issues which is just fine with me. I was also pumped that this one was a little longer than some of the others, but found that most of that extra time was spent listening to the same observations and internal monologues over and over. It's definitely still worth listening to, it just gets a little tedious at times.

Another great story...

I just love how the authors mash very current politics and the most stupid political actors and military sci-fi together. Unfortunately, we live in a period without the great T-Rex to clean up the mess we have to dwell in. Where is a hero when you need one?

Ray Porter is next to RC Bray the finest narrator and shows an incredible talent to bring the characters to life. Awesome. I hope this series continues for years to come!

Fix the audio!

Only issue I had was with the audio dropping out all the time. Everything else was great.

Excellent story.

I prefer RC Bray's narration, but Ray Porter did a great job with the character.

Incredible

Tyrus Rechs returns, part Rambo part terminator, I can’t get enough of the extended Galaxy Edge universe, the story, characters blend beautifully, grabs you by the throat. I was unable to stop listening. I waited until I was done with my second listen before I gave out my 5 star review, which I toss around like cinder blocks, if you like Military Science Fiction this audiobook is a must listen, lastly, the narration brings it all to life.

KTF

Well boys, you did it again! You took the political frustrations of today and intertwined them in a story where hated oxygen thieves meet the problem solver we all want to emulate. In the end you always fill us with heart felt, good guy emotions.
