Breaking News; Who killed Nova Meridian?
The savage murder of a pleasure worker rocks the corridors of Spaceport Adana. Peri Barberossa and Fyche, her faithful AI, answer a call from her sister Holly to get to Adana posthaste. When they arrive, they find Holly gone and a case of mistaken identity allows Peri to make a big impression on the enigmatic private eye, Silas Archimedes, who finds that Holly's sister is even more trouble than the ace reporter herself.
While Fyche discovers the joy of human sex, Holly's old nemesis, Mischa, reaches out with her long and vicious right arm.
Stay tuned for further carnal developments in The Adana Affair, a Peri Barberossa Spaceport adventure.
Ms Ash writes an interesting story. Peri is sexy and determined. She's a woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. Sometimes that's enough to make the story great, but this story needs something more. But I think Fyche was my favorite character. As an AI (artificial intelligence), everything from his point of view was so literal that it made it funny and added a wonderful bit of humor to this otherwise murder mystery type story.
The author writes well-described very hot sex scenes which also work to break up the suspense. Personally I found the plot a bit weak, but it was still entertaining. Mostly I kept reading to find out how Fyche does on his journey of learning about human sexuality, which I found interesting and wickedly funny. Over all this was a good book and I might read the next one.
