From the Aurealis Award-winning author of A Crucible of Souls.
To Inquisitor Angel Xia, it was just another corporate killing on a backwater planet. But as the bodies begin to pile up and she finds herself a target, she realizes she's stepped on one toe too many. Barely escaping attempts on her life by powerful agents with seemingly limitless reach and influence, Angel senses even her co-Inquisitors can't be trusted. But as the web tightens, she receives a cryptic message from a computer program claiming to be a little girl in desperate need of her help. She insists she's being held prisoner by a major corporation, but is this just a trap to silence Angel...permanently?
Now a fugitive with her life inextricably linked to the girl in the program, Angel is taken to extremes she never knew she was capable of and to forgotten places at the edges of known space that hold the darkest secrets of humanity and the greatest threat to its future.

great narration of a see through plot that goes in circles. not what I had in mind, though it warms on you near the end
"space police and genetic enhancement"
I read Hogans other two books first, and it is difficult to compare this book with his other two. Hogan's other two books are the BEST sci/fi books I have read yet and compare equal to 'The Martian'. As for the reading by Ms. Johnson it's ok but I wouldn't pick a book because of her narration.
Ally did well considering that the main characters are female.
Possibly, if done like 'Blade Runner' it could make a interesting movie.
Don't judge Mitchel Hogan by this book. I can't wait for his next book to be released. He can 'do' sci/fi magician better than anyone. Check out "Blood of Innocents" and "Crucible of Souls", you won't be disappointed!
"Fast paced and well performed"
Would like to have more to the story and some different perspectives. It's wrapped up at the end so doesn't seem like it will continue.
"ready for the next one"
I was skeptical at first but soon fell in love and now craving a follow up
A great read with a great narrator, the action started from the start and went right through to the end with a nice twist.
