Publisher's Summary

This is high-action, ideas-driven noir SF of the highest order. Morgan has already established himself as an SF author of global significance.
Takeshi Kovacs has come home. Home to Harlan's World. An ocean planet with only 5 percent of its landmass poking above the dangerous and unpredictable seas. Try and get above the weather in anything more sophisticated than a helicopter and the Martian orbital platforms will burn you out of the sky.
And death doesn't just wait for you in the seas and the skies. On land, from the tropical beaches and swamps of Kossuth to the icy, machine-infested wastes of New Hokkaido the hard won gains of the Quellist revolution have been lost. The First Families, the corporations and the Yakuza have a stranglehold on everything.Embarked on a journey of implacable retribution for a lost love, Kovacs is blown off course and into a maelstrom of political intrigue and technological mystery as the ghosts of Harlan's World and his own violent past rise to claim their due.
Quellcrist Falconer is back from the dead, they say and hunting her down for the First Families is a savage young Envoy called Kovacs who's been in storage.

Disappointing

I totally loved the first 2 audibooks and the author but then this!

I cant stand the new narrator - the singsong voice does nothing for this brutish hardened hero story and does not work for the genre. He is a significant change from the narrator of the first 2 books and cant pronounce the lead characters name.

What on earth happens in the story? Total mess. New characters keep on appearing all the way to the end. Eventually the poor plot just become annoying and I just couldnt care if the hero lived or died. If I hadnt listened to the other 2 books and enjoyed them so much I would have deleted this hours and hours ago. Real shame.

Poor quality recording

I've enjoyed Morgan's books (and own them in a number of formats - digital and analogue) and was looking forward to listening to the further adventures of Kovacs but didn't make it more than 5 minutes into this talking book. It sounded as though it had been recorded on a Walkman in my garage. In addition the narrator pronounced "Kovacs" with a hard "c" - something that the books themselves decry as incorrect!

I own 30-40 Audible titles and this is the worst quality recording I've come across. It is very disappointing and shows little respect for an enjoyable story.
