Paloma: A Retrieval Artist Novel Reissued
Paloma: A Retrieval Artist Novel has just hit e-book. A trade paper will follow later this year. But you can now read the next Miles Flint adventure by downloading from all e-bookstores, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. The wonderful cover is again by Jonathan Kort.
Here’s the book’s back cover copy:
Retrieval Artist Miles Flint gets an urgent message from his mentor, Paloma. But by the time he arrives at her apartment, she’s dead, the victim of a terrible murder. The police, already on the scene, think Flint’s connected to the death.
Effectively frozen out of the investigation, he starts one of his own, and discovers secrets that Paloma kept, secrets that make Flint question everything he knew about her, everything she taught him about honor, ethics, and being a Retrieval Artist.
“Rusch does a superb job of making the Retrieval Artist books work as fully satisfying standalone mysteries and as installments in a gripping saga full of love, loss, grief, hope, adventure, and discovery. It is also some of the best science fiction ever written.” —New York Times bestselling author Orson Scott Card
“A science fiction murder mystery by one of the genre’s best….A book with complex characters, an interesting and unpredictable plot, and timeless and universal things to say about the human condition.” —The Panama News
If there’s any such thing as a sci-fi CSI, the Retrieval Artist novels set the tone. —The Edge Boston
Thank you, I’ll flag to get the Analog. And I’ll keep an eye out for an upcoming Spade in the mystery mags. FWIW, every time I even *think* about cancelling my Asimov’s sub, either you or Connie Willis have something which makes the next cover. That’s an interesting dance.
LOL! I’m saving Connie’s current story for the day after Thanksgiving, when I officially start my holiday season. Can’t wait to read it. So I understand what you mean. 🙂 Thanks.
THANK YOU! Now that I have gotten to read Paloma, Recovery Man, and Duplicate Efforts (and the interim novellas / shorts) this month, it is difficult to wait until Anniversary Day is e-available. Audio books just are not the same for me. :(.
You’re welcome. Glad you’re enjoying the series. You might want to pick up the December Analog. There’s a non-related story in the RA universe in that issue. I plan to announce formally Friday…:-)
I have a question for a author. After I have bought two copies of all the “Retrevial” series in paperback. Not including the one I just ordered from you that comes out in a month or so signed by paypal. How/ why do you want what is essentially the new price to get a e book of what I have one or more copies? Cannot there be some systom that says I bought the book now here is the e book. Think about Lois and the Vorskiagian series.
We’re working on that, Bill. Unfortunately, there’s no way to do it through all paper book retailers. We might be able to convince WMG to give away the e-book when you buy the paper directly from them. But that takes some interesting computer wrangling. Trust me, this is something I really want to do.
I wish we could find a way to do the same thing for people who’ve bought the series in full, as you have, in paper, in the past. I’m not yet sure how to do that because of the different publishers involved.
Glad you’re enjoying the series!
