Another brilliant novella by Scalzi and narrated by Zachary Quinto. 

While the novella could be read or listened to as a stand-alone,  I recommend listening from the beginning. 

I am now starting book three and have to admit that I will be sad when it ends. I have loved being on this journey with Tony.

A really interesting idea and rather well executed. Zachary's voice was fantastic for the narration as well.

I had no idea this was book 2 in a series and it works as a stand alone just fine.

A murder mystery in a world where murder isn't possible. This was a quick, fun sci-fi mystery that continues to explore a world where death can only happen accidentally or by natural means, not by murder. I didn't realize it was a sequel when I started reading it, but it does a good job of laying down the groundwork of the world, so I didn't feel like I was missing too much.
