Available in EPUB format.

Master thief Christmas "Crazy-Eyes" Parker has murdered a path from one end of the galaxy to the other, earning a living as a hired gun for the Galactic Coalition, the singular government controlling all planets inhabited by mankind. When an armored truck job goes sideways on the planet Eridan, Parker puts herself at odds with her government liaison, Horace Murchison (who betrays Parker thanks to a convincing religious experience), and her boss, industrial magnate Atusa Navarro, a woman who is equal parts generous philanthropist and ruthless killer. 

While Parker looks to repay Murchison's betrayal with a bullet and recover the package she was sent to steal off the truck – whatever it was – Navarro struggles to shake the attention of detective Benjamin Weizmann, a persistent and intelligent man willing to risk personal ruin for the sake of a case as big as hers. Coming in the middle of an election season for the Coalition, Weizmann's investigation threatens the government's legitimacy. The package Parker stole off that armored truck, meanwhile, threatens to forever alter what it means to be human. Politics, money, power and fate intersect violently in A Voice in the Thunder the first installment in the Children and Ghosts quintet.

Product Information
File Size:

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
