    1. My least favourite so far, including book one But it shifts the story of Miles Flint along nicely, and gives Noelle some romantic interest, so it s not all bad Once you have started the series, you cannot miss one None of these books can be considered stand alones if you ve missed one, you ve missed something important So read it anyway Just I never really liked Paloma And this book doesn t make me like her any better

    2. How well do you know someone If you find out some damaging information about someone you admired and respected would that change your view of that person Is justice a zero sum game These questions get answered in a surprising fashion from Paloma Book 5 of the Retrieval Artist Series by Kristine Kathryn Rusch I have decided to read and review the entire series here on the website and I must write it has been an absolute pleasure following the adventures of Miles Flint, the Retrieval Artist and va [...]

    3. Starts off with a bang but eventually gets talky I enjoy the futuristic world of the Retrieval Artist and Miles Flint is a sympathetic if uncomplicated hard edged detective This novel, fifth in the series, has less of an alien presence than the first four, however It eventually reminded me of the cheap 1950 s SF movies where, where due to budget constraints, you don t get to see the monster until the last two minutes.

    4. I read the short story The Retrieval Artist first, and though I don t usually read series books out of order, I tried this one I thought it was dull, really Too much unnecessary description, too much repetition I can t even remember the name of the cop investigating Paloma s murder, but he reminded me of Inspector Javert from Les Miserables , bound and determined that Flint is the chief suspect even though there s very little evidence of his involvement that isn t circumstantial As for the Wagne [...]

    7. Paloma is the fifth installment in the Retrieval Artists, a science fiction mystery series following former detective Miles Flint The series starts with The Disappeared, but since each book is a stand alone mystery, you could theoretically read them independently.Miles Flint used to be a detective working for the police force of Armstrong, a domed city on the moon Then he bought a business from a woman named Paloma and became a retrieval artist, someone who goes looking for people who ve gone in [...]

    8. Plot Miles Flint is a Retrieval Artist, living on the Moon and helping to find the Disappeared who ve been forced into hiding by the Earth Alliance regime When his friend and mentor, Paloma, is brutally murdered, Flint takes it upon himself to investigate.Thoughts Once again, I ve managed to jump into the middle of a series And once again, this has left me a little confused about certain things especially The Disappeared, considering Flint doesn t spend any time working as a Retrieval Artist in [...]

    10. I liked this book in the series than some others because the characters, Miles especially, seem to be comfortable in their new roles and are starting to act accordingly This means the story makes sense in how it plays out because the characters actions are believable for them as characters It also concentrates on the actions of humans rather than aliens, and the human actions probably will not surprise anyone I didn t even mind, as a lawyer, that it made lawyers out to be some pretty nasty [...]

    11. Ah the revealing of Paloma I like Paloma When I first read this book and the next book, The Recovery Man, I felt very betrayed and disillusioned by Paloma Yet as I continued on in the series I found myself liking Paloma again As I reread this as my husband reads this series I find Paloma s character real Miles at times feels too perfect He doesn t always feel organic, in the later novels Talia helps Paloma feels real Her choices, while not ideal feel organic and real They feel desperate Miles a [...]

    12. As others have mentioned, this 5th book in the series is also my least favourite of the series so far Nonetheless, it does progress the continuing evolution and development of the main characters and hence remains important to the whole series Paloma was never a major person of interest to me in the earlier books, and did not become interesting after her death in this one she was just a plot device for poor old suffering Miles to deal with yet another betrayal Meh I hope this isnt the beginning [...]

    13. Another great book in Rusch s Retrieval Artist series This is the 5th book in the series and her writing is taut, her characters engaging and the plot is compelling It is the best science fiction mystery series that I have ever read She continues to amaze me with her creative skills in keeping the stories fresh and not trite in a somewhat limited setting A wholly enjoyable read that is hard to put down, at least for the SF fan I look forward to her next effort.

    14. I loved this one, but even as an international lawyer, I found some of it dragged with the focus on the technical, non crisis issues It was an important book for the series, for the character development that it represents, and I ll be glad for it later on, as Miles and Noelle and Ki continue to grow and become real people, but as a single book, it suffered from some of that detailed approach.

    15. This is a Retrieval Artist novel I read the paperback edition, and noticed quite a few editing errors that were distracting The plot is thin The story seems unlikely, as are the characters and the interpersonal relationships that are described in the story The book was not as good as some of the author s previous works, but better than some others I did not enjoy the book, and I would not recommend it.

    16. Another great continuation of the series, and only two to go This time, Miles Flint takes on a legal firm when he discovers that they are hiding something Not much here about alien cultures and their interactions with humans like some of the previous novels this is about detective work and a little legal wrangling.Rating PG 13, mild language, a couple of violent gory scenes.

    19. Wow, very cool to learn so much about Paloma even though I was so disappointed in the person she was in the past Rusch does a great job of emotionally investing the reader in the story and the pace is brisk, never dragging.

    20. Probably my least favorite installment I enjoyed the various revelations about Paloma and their effects on Miles However, I do feel that the book devolved into a lot of tell rather than show toward the end I will still continue with the series.The audiobook narrator is excellent.
