Have I read this book before?

This is a question I find myself asking this week.  2zpoccl

I’m reading the first Kris Longknife book: Mutineer by Mike Shepherd. I know I’ve read other Kris Longknife books before. I’m pretty sure I’ve read this first one, too.

It’s just that I don’t actually remember the events in this book. There was a rescue of a kidnapped little girl; she goes to provide food and vaccine to a community over in with a deadly, infectious disease; I don’t remember thing.

I remember the liquid metal and that you could form it into any shape that you wanted. I also remembered that it stopped working after a while, maybe on purpose. I remember her computer’s name.

Nothing else is ringing a bell. Which leads me to ask myself: Have I read this b00k before?

I can’t make up my mind. But if I haven’t read it before, how did I miss the first Kris Longknife book? I don’t know. It seems impossible.
