Consequences is one of the books in the Retrieval Artist series by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. It's 3rd in the series but the 1st I've read. I liked this a lot and went to Borders to see if I could find any more of them, having picked up the 2 I have at a used book store. Nothing by this author was on the shelf. I looked her up on, and it seems the first and second books in the series are out of print. What a shame. Amazon does have copies listed from other vendors.

from the back of the book:
Officer Noelle DeRicci is investigating a murder in the domed colony of Armstrong on the Moon. The victim was one of the Disappeared - outlaws in hiding who are wanted for crimes against alien civilizations - whose family had her brought home, believing she was no longer in danger.

Retrieval Artist Miles Flint is responsible for putting the dead woman in harm's way. He may be the only one with the information needed to solve the case. Now, with DeRicci pressing him for answers he's not ready to give, he must relive the events that led up to his client's death, including her role in a war between humans and a mysterious alien race. And that ongoing war continues to escalate - and threatens to consume the entire solar system...

SFRevu likes the book and closes with this:
Readers who enjoyed the previous books in the series will definitely want to read this one as well, and new readers should not be put off by the fact that it is the third in the series, since it works equally well as a stand-alone novel.
