Autumn is a good time for reading: Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood

Some time ago I was in the mood for a little science fiction. I’m very picky about what I read when I want science fiction. So I decided to choose a book by an author I know I like how she writes.

And she didn’t disappoint me. I loved this book from the first chapter to the end.

First of all, if you are looking for hard science fiction, you won’t find it in Hunting the Corrigan’s Blood. What you can find is a novel character driven and multi-layered, and that’s how I like novels I read.

Although it is no hard science fiction, the science in the novel it’s well thought. Somethings can seem implausible, but they are possible in the universe of the novel.

Fast-paced, it begins as an adventure novel to end in a murder mystery, but without losing its adventure flavour.

Cadence Drake is a finder of lost things. Badger Bede is a technical wizard adept at creating programs that make Cady’slife easier. Both are handy with a stunner.

All their talents are put to the test as they search for the CORRIGAN’S BLOOD, a new kind of TFN-drive spaceship with some very special abilities. At first it looks like their dream job — the job that will allow them to pay off their own ship, the HOPE’S REWARD, and to be more picky about the clients and work they accept — but they quickly learn that every dream has a price.

Because behind the stolen ship lies the mystery of the people who stole it, people who appear to be using this insanely expensive vessel and others like it to smuggle inexpensive medicine to people who don’t need it.

And behind that mystery is another…

Why are all these people linked to Cady’s past and the one person who made it impossible for her to ever go home again?

And why does everyone in the universe want Cady dead?

HUNTING THE CORRIGAN’S BLOOD includes a link in the back of the book for a download of the song “Didn’t Expect That,” written and performed by the author, with the author’s musician brother-in-law providing the very cool lead guitar part, one of the two rhythm tracks, and a lot of training on how to mix music (on limited
equipment with no speakers).

The author notes that this song sounds much better if listened to while wearing headphones or earbuds.

The author also notes, drolly, that this song also sounds much better if you keep in mind that I’m a writer who sings and plays guitar, and not a singer or guitarist who writes novels.
