Set in the same world as Waypoint Kangaroo, Curtis C. Chen's Kangaroo Too is bursting with adrenaline and intrigue in this unique outer space adventure.
The latest Audiobook in The Kangaroo Series is sure to grip listeners — whichever planet they happen to call home.
On the way home from his latest mission, secret agent Kangaroo's spacecraft is wrecked by a rogue mining robot. The agency tracks the bot back to the Moon, where a retired asteroid miner—code named "Clementine" —might have information about who's behind the sabotage.
Clementine will only deal with Jessica Chu, Kangaroo's personal physician and a former military doctor once deployed in the asteroid belt. Kangaroo accompanies Jessica as a courier, smuggling Clementine's payment of solid gold in the pocket universe that only he can use.
What should be a simple infiltration is hindered by the nearly one million tourists celebrating the anniversary of the first Moon landing. And before Kangaroo and Jessica can make contact, Lunar authorities arrest Jessica for the murder of a local worker.
Jessica won't explain why she met the victim in secret or erased security footage that could exonerate her. To make things worse, a sudden terror attack puts the whole Moon under lockdown. Now Kangaroo alone has to get Clementine to talk, clear Jessica's name, and stop a crooked scheme which threatens to ruin approximately one million vacations.
But old secrets are buried on the Moon, and digging up the past will make Kangaroo's future very complicated...

Great follow up to Waypoint Kangaroo
This sequel to Waypoint Kangaroo gives equal thrills in a closer, more character-focused story.
Kangaroo has gained confidence since the events of book 1, but he still wields his trademark quips and a certain, youthful insecurity. He knows the world around him has become if anything more dangerous since his mission on the cruise-spaceship to Mars, as one of the biggest threats from that book is still wreaking havoc with insider knowledge about the agency.
Kangaroo Too send Kangaroo and his long-suffering doctor, Jessica "Surge" Chu, are sent to the moon to meet a mysterious contact who might have clues about robots going rogue. Along the way, Kangaroo will have to negotiate what it means to trust when you work for an agency that is all about secrets, and to team up with people he wants to hate.
The conflicts and fight scenes are dynamic, and the situations complex yet utterly believable within Kangaroo's world. Curtis Chen's deft writing continues to convey humor and tension on every page.
The voice performance is good and clear--great for Kangaroo's voice--and has good differentiation for the other characters, though his "female" voices are a little similar to one another and a bit grating. Still, a very fun listen overall.
