Audio Note: I thought Todd McLaren gave a good performance of the audio

In the second book Broken Angels, Morgan puts Kovacs in another compelling and very dangerous situation, while still maintaining the character's unlikeability.
Written by Richard K. Morgan. Narrated by Todd McLaren. This book is about Kovacs teaming up with yet another group of mercenaries, to recover an important alien artifact. You see, pretty much all of the high-tech stuff in their world, they stole from the aliens. The problem is, those aliens were smart as fuck, and they put fun little booby traps in and around most of their artifacts, to wreak havoc with any fool who tries to snatch up such valuable items.

Broken Angels takes place about thirty years after the events of Altered Carbon, but for Kovacs this doesn’t count for much. In the interim he’s been busy-best not to inquire doing what-but when you’re resleeving (changing physical bodies) on a regular basis, the years tend not to show.
