Booklist calls Extremes "an exemplary futuristic detective thriller." RT Book Reviews says, "This futuristic tale breaks new ground as a space police procedural and should appeal to science fiction and mystery fans." But Locus Magazine covers it all: "Extremes is simultaneously thriller, deftly plotted detective story, and SF complete with a form of Mad Scientist. Like the best of those genres, it also features well-drawn characters whose various viewpoints, areas of expertise, moral choices, and personal dilemmas all add to the rich mix."

“Extremes is sophisticated storytelling that works all the way, a futuristic detective/PI novel with the blend of contemporary and timeless relevance only the best writers can achieve.”
—Locus

“The hunt for truth and the struggle for survival move at a brisk back and come to a bang-up conclusion.”
—Analog

“This novel is definitely recommended for fans of the series but will stand alone for those who have not read the previous novel or novella.”
—Kliatt


“Good all around…an exemplary futuristic detective thriller.”
—Booklist

“An inventive plot and complex, conflicted characters increases the appeal of Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Extremes. This futuristic tale breaks new ground as a space police procedural and should appeal to science fiction and mystery fans.”
—Romantic Times Book Club
