Free AudioBook: The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch

From now through July 24, Audible is giving away a free download of The Disappeared, the first book in Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Retrieval Artist series, which grew out of her Hugo-nominated novella.

Registration at Audible is all that’s required.

Here’s the publisher summary:

Retrieval artists help the lost find their way back home, whether they like it or not. Specialized private detectives, they investigate the most unusual crimes in the galaxy. But Miles Flint isn’t a Retrieval artist. He’s just a cop, trying to do his job.

In a stolen space yacht, three people have been found eviscerated – the grisly signature of an alien vengeance killing. Moments later, the border patrol halts another ship launched out of the Moon’s orbit. Its passengers are two human children, kidnapped by the most ruthless aliens in the universe.

Both ships are linked to a woman on the run: a Disappeared relocated to the inhospitable landscape of Mars. A reluctant outlaw with a bounty on her head and a detective on her case, she’s about to teach all of them a lesson: it’s dangerous to gamble with your life in a universe that rigs the game.

    Audible is absolutely AWESOME. So far I have downloaded and transferred to CD at least a dozen SF audiobooks for listening in the car, and they are releasing more all the time. There are literally hundreds available, including the entire Retrieval Artist series to date. I enjoy them so much that I would live in my car it it had a shower…

  2. The easier solution would probably be getting a cd player for your shower.

  3. If you stick “UK” in country of residence when trying to “buy” this, it forwards you to their .co.uk site where the book isn’t available for free.
