Corruption. Greed. Lust.
Sins undercover Galactic Vice Detective Etch Knowles faces every day.
Politicians on the take. Underground gambling. Sex trafficking.
Another day at the office for Galactic Vice Lieutenant Angie McDade.
Shaking down hustlers. Offering "protection" to bar owners. Cheating at tile games.
Galactic Vice Detective Kalaka doesn't exactly play by the rules.
A cargo barge filled with corpses. A potential war between crime syndicates. Traitors within the Galactic Vice.
These are the nightmares the three must face. Using all of their resources and experience, they will fight to keep each other alive, even it means bending rules, busting heads, and breaking laws.
But tossing regulations to the side and going rogue may not save them from an investigation that has doom and downfall written all over it.
Can they solve the case before it becomes their last? Or will the operation fail and end up ripping their lives and Jafla Base apart....
Great read although not as good as some of his other works such as Roarke , same universe but quite a few good bits of character involvement and world building.
Do wish JB would get out of the "said" usuage as this comes across more prominently so in the audio as opposed to the ebook.
This does work better as an audio however so excellent narration from ABW as per normal.
This is the first of the new series so i will keep my eyes and ears peeled before giving my final judgement but there is potential here.
This is my own opinion as i picked this up as a freebie by my own decision.
A non responsive barge brought into dock. Inside the bodies of men, women, children, all but one dead for several weeks. Then everything explodes...
Sex trafficking. A case for undercover agents of the Galactic Vice Squad, Sent to Jappla Base. A typically fast paced Make Bible story where plot and action moves so quickly that a moment's distraction and the ?listener is !let in the twists, turns, shocks and betrayals of the book. Almost non stop action of various assorted types, numerous alien types yet still well developed characters.
Great dialogue, too: there's humour in the blood and conspiracies.
Narrator Andrew Werhlen matches the pace with his reading, voices the protagonists well and his wry, almost throw away, delivery catches the highly atmospheric feel of the text.
This really is a book hard to stop reading. Absolutely packed with mental pictures and characters to both love and dislike (simultaneously), this is a must hear audio presentation. It quite blew this listener away. A big thank you to the rights holder for freely victim g me with a copy gaLactic Vice, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Great story. Hope there will be another soon.
If you have read/listened to any of the Roak series by Jake Bible then you will like this story. The setting is reminiscent of the seedy underworld of Star Wars but not too similar.
The story had me guessing (Wrongly) all the way through with some surprising twists near the end.
As usual the narrator does a great job with both sexes without any sounding silly as can be the case with some audiobooks.
Overall I really enjoyed this and I will be looking out for the next in the series

This book was a great little surprise to me, I wasnt expecting it to be quite as good as it was. The story is intricate and provides interesting plots and points throughout the story.
I particularly enjoyed the blend of thriller and science fiction, this was quite refreshing and added a little dimension to the story.
The characters are well presented and develop at differing rates giving an organic feel to the story.
The narration is another stellar performance from Andrew B Wehrlen. Distinctive characters with emotion and gravitas as required for the story to become immersive.
A great thriller set on an alien world. Provided a good listen with an above average performance. Worth spending a little time to listen and enjoy this good story.

Jake Bible and Andrew Wehrlen are the new dynamic duo! This listen was exceptional. The story was captivating. I started it and could not stop until the very end.
The world and its inhabitants, all of them hating on humans and Earth, was fun and intriguing and incredibly special.
Main characters came and went, the guilty was and then was not, and the universe kept on spinning.
With that ending, there has to be a book two. There had better be a book two. Please let there be a book two.

A Jafla Base Vice Squad Novel
By: Jake Bible
Narrated by: Andrew B. Wehrlen
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
This book has lots of mini plots and turns going on that kept this reader on her toes. I love all the action, the imagination, the ingenious characters, and the wonderful world building. His books always come with great sci-fi, suspense, adventure, and loads of satisfaction.
The narrator was wonderful and performed the voices so well I would have thought there was multiple actors. Well done!

Jake Bible has created a sci-fi universe that rivals that of Star Wars. The difference being that this universe is darker and dirtier than anything Star Wars ever three out there including its boba feet bounty hunter series. Roak and his ilk are amazing. This story is a spinoff of a story arc. This whole story centers around a space station that was featured in another story. The characters are dark dirty. Easy to love easy to hate and absolutely amazing. The story is rife with twists and amazing surprises. Get ready to get down and dirty with a station and its inhabitants in this very cool story.

I always love Jake Bible. I’ll read anything he writes. Lots of action. Original story. Loved it. Andrew Wehrlen is a fantastic narrator. He makes the book come to life.

To put it simply, Jake Bible is an incredibly talented entertainer. He could probably find away to make watching paint dry seem like the most invigorating event in the galaxy. The guy knows how to write a thriller, and this book is further proof of that. The only downside of this book is deciphering who is who and which species is which especially if you're walking in a loud section of the city (my fault, not the authors). I had to listen to it a second time to piece everything together as a result.

Part Dick Tracy, part Space Opera. All good! Loved it. The story is fast-paced and fun. The narration was superb, but with Andrew Wehrlen, that was not a surprise. All in all, well worth the time.
Not quite a Roak adventure but still entertaining and fun. Snarky and fast paced, plenty of action. Great narration.

Nice story set in the same universe as the Roak bounty hunter series. Story moves at a nice pace with some nice twists. Not as full on as a Roak adventure, but still entertaining.
Andrew Wehrlen does a good job and deals well with the various characters.
