9780615724232: Extremes: A Retrieval Artist Novel

A Retrieval Artist dies of a virus, yet his colleague, Miles Flint, believes the death is not an accident. Police detective Noelle DeRicci knows that the death of a young woman in the Moon’s prestigious Extreme Marathon is not an accident. It soon becomes clear that both deaths are connected. Flint and DeRicci find themselves in their own race, one against time and a certain kind of madness that could threaten everything they know and love. Booklist calls Extremes “an exemplary futuristic detective thriller.” RT Book Reviews says, “This futuristic tale breaks new ground as a space police procedural and should appeal to science fiction and mystery fans.” But Locus Magazine covers it all: “Extremes is simultaneously thriller, deftly plotted detective story, and SF complete with a form of Mad Scientist. Like the best of those genres, it also features well-drawn characters whose various viewpoints, areas of expertise, moral choices, and personal dilemmas all add to the rich mix.”

Review:

Hugo And World Fantasy Award-Winning Author The acclaimed science fiction-police series that goes where "few authors have thoroughly explored."

Praise for The Disappeared: "An entertaining blend of mystery and SF."

"A very thought-provoking novel that lives up to every expectation we have of Rusch and her considerable talent. Buy and enjoy."

"Achieves a higher purpose: to make us look at the world around us with a new under-standing."

"[Rusch] especially excels in tales of the collision between humor and alien cultures. The Disappeared is a fine example of her skill."
