From the Mean Streets of Chicago to Lunar Noir: The Mystery Novels of - Kristine Kathryn Rusch

"Meanwhile, the incredibly prolific Rusch has created a hybrid mystery and sci fi series with her Retrieval Artist books. The Edge Boston noted of that series: “Part CSI, part Blade Runner, and part hard-boiled gumshoe, the retrieval artist of the series title, one Miles Flint, would be as at home on a foggy San Francisco street in the 1940s as he is in the domed lunar colony of Armstrong City.” Publishers Weekly called it a “provocative interplanetary detective series with healthy doses of planet-hopping intrigue, heady legal dilemmas and well-drawn characters,” while Booklist raved, “Rusch mounts hard-boiled noir on an expansive sf background with great panache.”"
