Cynical, quick-on-the-trigger Takeshi Kovacs, the ex-U.N. envoy turned private eye, has changed careers, and bodies, once more…trading sleuthing for soldiering as a warrior-for-hire, and helping a far-flung planet's government put down a bloody revolution. But when it comes to taking sides, the only one Kovacs is ever really on is his own. So when a rogue pilot and a sleazy corporate fat cat offer him a lucrative role in a treacherous treasure hunt, he's only too happy to go AWOL with a band of resurrected soldiers of fortune. All that stands between them and the ancient alien spacecraft they mean to salvage are a massacred city bathed in deadly radiation, unleashed nanotechnolgy with a million ways to kill, and whatever surprises the highly advanced Martian race may have in store. But armed with his genetically engineered instincts, and his trusty twin Kalashnikovs, Takeshi is ready to take on anything—and let the devil take whoever's left behind.
Once again, narrator Todd McLaren is pitch perfect in reading this action-packed SciFi Noir story. This one is perhaps a little more violent and action oriented than Altered Carbon and is, in fact, a very different kind of story. So even though the cynical world-weary tone is similar to the other Kovacks novels, Broken Angels never feels stale or repetitive. Morgan's writing combined with McLaren's narration makes them one of the best audiobooks teams regardless of genre.
