Cadence Drake is a finder of lost things. Badger Bede is a technical wizard adept at creating programs that make Cady’s life easier. Both are handy with a stunner.
All their talents are put to the test as they search for the CORRIGAN’S BLOOD, a new kind of TFN-drive spaceship with some very special abilities. At first it looks like their dream job — the job that will allow them to pay off their own ship, the HOPE’S REWARD, and to be more picky about the clients and work they accept — but they quickly learn that every dream has a price.
Because behind the stolen ship lies the mystery of the people who stole it, people who appear to be using this insanely expensive vessel and others like it to smuggle inexpensive medicine to people who don’t need it.
And behind that mystery is another…
Why are all these people linked to Cady’s past and the one person who made it impossible for her to ever go home again?
And why does everyone in the universe want Cady dead?
HUNTING THE CORRIGAN’S BLOOD includes a link in the back of the book for a download of the song "Didn’t Expect That," written and performed by the author, with the author’s musician brother-in-law providing the very cool lead guitar part, one of the two rhythm tracks, and a lot of training on how to mix music (on limited equipment with no speakers).
The author notes that this song sounds much better if listened to while wearing headphones or earbuds.
The author also notes, drolly, that this song sounds much better if you keep in mind that I’m a writer who sings and plays guitar, and not a singer or guitarist who writes novels.

"One of the things I really loved about Cady was that in spite of the cruelty that life has thrown at her, she still has some softness within her. She may look tough, but if you peel away the layers, we discover a young woman who is human, hurting, and still trying to heal from past wounds inflicted by those she loved. She cares about life, and people, and her voice and characterization are strong. Cadence wants freedom from the system, and she’s working hard to get there. I found her not only likeable, but a character that I could identify with readily. Lisle obviously did her homework on creating real and workable characters; despite my love for Cady, I love her sidekick Badger more. He may be “the most annoying person in the universe”, but you can’t help but love him anyway. Even the villains made me love them in their own sordid way; `deliciously evil’ is a phrase that comes to mind." — Kelly Dillon (from Amazon.com)
