I got this audio book as part of the rear for backing Project Fedora, funding for the latest Tex Murphy game. I never did finish the actual "Pandora Directive" game because, well, I seem to suck at video games.

A superb throwback to the PI noir genre. This is one of my all-time detective favourites.
