Kris Longknife's Bloodhound by Mike Shepherd | NOOK Book (eBook) | Barnes & Noble®
I feel guilty that Goodreads has no way of separating novelas from full-length novels. This was a good filler between the books, detailing a lot of the back room political and police wrangling that went on behind Furious. It does not add a whole lot and I can see why the publisher cut it from the book, as most of it is superfluous to the main story. As a fan of noir fiction which I find too few to be worth reading , I enjoy a good cop yarn every now and then. I enjoyed reading about the police I feel guilty that Goodreads has no way of separating novelas from full-length novels.
I enjoyed reading about the police chase behind Kris. I enjoyed learning of the attempts made to track Kris and why their efforts failed. I really enjoyed this short, a lot of these in this series haven't appealed to me but this really compliments the main novels. Does not stand alone but worth the listen.

Mar 02, Dee rated it liked it. Initially I was disappointed to step away from the cliffhanger ending of Furious Kris Longknife 10 but came to enjoy the insight into Taylor Foile's nvestigation. Dec 09, Wilco Roos rated it did not like it Shelves: discarded , Unreadable, i have bought it and it is the first Mike Shepherd book i am sorry i spend money on.
It is formatted in a way that makes it near impossible to read, with a sentence per page, and if you are lucky 2. Also does it conflict with the storyline in Furious, not a big problem, but if this is what you get from wading trough the first chapter.. Also my thumb started hurting from page turning, no idea what he was thinking, but i would appreciate a readable copy..

Novella While Kris is on trials for her life, Agent Foile tries to figure out where the shipping fleet is assembling A good short story about how the got information in the 10th book, worth the read. It was nice getting to look at a character what was a nice addition to the last book and im glad it showed how they got some of the information that was a key point.
May 20, Glen rated it it was ok. I experienced the same problems as other readers: lots of typos, and a display of one paragraph per page on my e-reader. The display was OK on my android app. Apart from the above annoyances, I enjoyed this side story, and would have given it 3 stars. Nov 12, Laz the Sailor rated it liked it Shelves: scifi , short. A short side-story in the Kris Longknife saga. Nothing particularly special, except as how it fits in the puzzle.
However, if I'm right, these side stories including the Vicky sequence may combine to quite the climax in the story arc.
