Science fiction author John Scalzi (Redshirts, Old Man’s War) delivers a thrilling new tale in The Dispatcher. A novella available exclusively on Audible, The Dispatcher introduces a future where murder victims come back to life:
One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone—999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don’t know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life.
Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher—a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death’s crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge a supposed wrong.
Actor Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, Heroes) narrates the novella, which is available from Audible for FREE until November 2nd. Since The Dispatcher is an “audio-original” (and therefore will never be released in print), you’ll want to get a copy soon.
