Castro, Adam-Troy -- Emissaries From the Dead

Thoroughly engaging first novel about a company fix-it lady in a not-very-nice universe. She is not very nice, either. In fact she's a thoroughgoing grouch and misanthrope; but the author does this with such sympathy -- both for the protagonist and for all the screwed-up people she's investigating -- that I could not dislike her. Or rather, I had to respect her. (Contrast the worthless ratfink protagonist in Tim Pratt's Blood Engines.) Plus a bouncing SF mystery story. Recommended.
