"futuristic medical thriller police procedural"
In the far distant future, mankind has treaties with at
least fifty alien species because Earth and her colonies
want to trade with them, humanity is subject to their
laws. If a person has run afoul of an alien species and
doesn't want to be held accountable under alien law, they
disappear. Retrieval Artist Miles Flint, based in the
Armstrong Dome on the moon, searches for the Disappeared
for matters they left unfinished but doesn't hand them in
People, agencies and governments hire trackers to find the
disappeared and hand them over the proper authorities.
Tracker Miran Oliviari has come to the Moon Marathon run
outside the dome to see if she can find Frieda Tey in her
new identity as a business entrepreneur. She is wanted
for murder for the killing of many people in a scientific
experiment gone awry. Before the Tracker can confront her
prey, police detective Noelle Ricci investigates the murder
of a marathon runner that Oliviari believes was Tey. Flint
comes into the scenario when a client hires him to find
Tey; a job that almost gets him killed when he figures out
who she really is and where she is going.
Unlike the first book in this series, THE DISAPPEARED,
there are no aliens residing on the pages of this novel.
This is a medical thriller police procedural set in the
future with humans judging their own. The antagonist of
Extremes uses smoke and mirrors to conduct an illegal and
unethical scientific experiment and in the confession,
disappears. Only one person will find her and the person
who blinks first will die.
