''In Second Chance Angel, a pair of badly damaged combat veterans team up to find the kidnapped woman who is crucial to both of them. One vet was an enlisted grunt. The other was an officer's artificial intelligence. Vivid action and intelligent backgrounds as the team unravels a criminal conspiracy that goes well above their pay grades.'' --Dave Drake, author of Hammer's Slammers
''Space opera, sentient AIs, and a mystery to solve. What more can you ask for?'' --S. K. Dunstall, author of Linesman
''With this fun, noir-tinged thriller, the first in the Last Stop Station series, Barber and Ezell weave together intrigue, action, and romance, all with a hard-boiled sensibility...The authors expertly contrast claustrophobic interiors and the vastness of space, creating a world that feels both alien and lived-in. Readers will be hooked.'' --Publishers Weekly --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
About the Author
Griffin Barber spent his youth in four different countries, learning three languages while holding down jobs in marinas, bars, cafés, and, memorably, cold-calling casino guests. Finally settled in Northern California with a day job as a police officer in a major metropolitan department, he lives the good life with his wife and daughter. 1636: Mission to the Mughals, coauthored with Eric Flint, was his first novel; he has also written numerous short stories. Second Chance Angel is what he hopes to be the first of many collaborations with Kacey Ezell.
Kacey Ezell is the author of the Four Horseman Tales and the Revelations Cycle.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Muck was a good character but the standouts to me were all of the AIs, each with its own personality and at different stages in their developments. They all felt like machines to me and I loved getting a first person point of view from each because they were written to give an alien feel to them.
The Muck and Angel relationship was also a highlight, the push and pull between them growing into something more in an organic fashion.
If I had to mention something I didn't like it would probably be that there were a number of threads in the novel that were not brought to a close. I understand that there will be further books in the series but I expected some more closure at the end of this one than I got. But hey, that gives me something to look forward to. Overall a recommendation, just be aware that to get many answers you'll need to read the next one.
Siren sang at a cabaret called “A Curtain of Stars'', a class joint, but it attracted its share of trouble. Ralston Muck, a demodded ex-CID was a bouncer at the club. When Siren was kidnapped, her angel got away and wound up in Muck. The angel and Muck team up to search for Siren.
An action packed who dun it, keeps you turning the pages
The characters are fascinating and you want to follow them through a complex plot. And, while it's a difficult problem to pull off having multiple characters as the first person narrators, it's done perfectly.
I'm very much looking forward to buying the next book in this series.
Saddle up, everyone! I don't know Griffin but Kacey, you've got that Mil-24 gunship dancing around the Georgian mountain passes again!
