Review by: Nyerguds on May 14, 2015 :
Tying into the "A Girl And Her Fed" webcomic and the Rachel Peng novels, this particular tale gives some lovely insight into the person behind the public relations playboy-face of the OACET cyborgs.

This is another great detective/adventure novel from K.B. Spangler, with the same kind of surprising twists and turns as the Rachel Peng ones, but with some added sexiness courtesy of Josh. A thrilling and tale of adventure, romance, and of course the dreaded Apartment Squirrels.

All of the characters in K.B.Spangler's AGAHF universe are quirky, interesting and fun, but Josh is something else entirely. He's a totally unapologetic slut, a hilarious cad, and an awesome secret agent. All three are perfectly visible in this story, and it's a wonderful read. Well worth your dollar! Heck... I bought it twice!

Review by: Valentine Oggan on Nov. 25, 2014 :
Awesome characters, and Josh's voice feels completely natural for such a funny, silly adventure. I really enjoyed the story, with special mention to the positive and talkative sex, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
I'm pretty familiar with the AGAHF webcomic and the Rachel Peng books, and I'd probably provide my friends with The Russians Came Knocking first, as the OACET/implant/collective aspects are lighter and the story stands pretty much on its own. Although I so like seeing more of each Agent, especially as they all seem real and differently human ^^

Review by: Dana McVey on July 29, 2013 :
Worth far more than 0.99. I located this author through her webcomic, like most readers likely did, and I will now buy anything she publishes, especially if it's in the same universe as AGaHF. Getting to focus in on characters who don't often get the spotlight in the main comic is always fun.

For new readers, it doesn't give as much information on the implant that OACET revolves around as the Digital Divide novella does, but there's enough that you won't be left totally in the dark. I was grinning or chuckling through most of the story, and laughed out loud more than once at a particularly ridiculous scene or choice turn of phrase. The bits of violence serve as just enough of a shock to keep you interested, and the sex scenes are... honestly pretty hot.

Very good read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi, crime dramas, or spy novels.

Another fantastic, bedtime-delaying book by K. B. Spangler.
Beware of far too much laughing into your electronic device at inappropriate times and places.

Review by: Jonathan Galliher on July 29, 2013 :
If you love "Indiana Jones" you'll also enjoy "The Russians Came Knocking" since they seem to be in the same genre, though the sex is, of course, less explicit in the movies. Or perhaps the 007 stories (minus the sexism) are a closer comparison. This Josh Glassman story has the same wild, rollicking rompiness as Bond or Indiana Jones in the way it careens from one rather implausible encounter to the next with plenty of twists to keep surprising you all the way to the end (although in the case of Bond and Jones, the surprises are invented to stretch the story until it fills the time allotted).

Review by: Richard Brooks on July 29, 2013 :
I am not too sure about the intent but I get the feeling that when writing this the author had her tongue wedged firmly in her cheek. Fast pacing and liberal doses of humor make this a very easy read with a lot of smiles and a couple of genuine laugh out loud moments.

Review by: Patricia O'Neill on July 28, 2013 :
I loved this addition to the 'A Girl and Her Fed' universe. It's a fast read, but for only 99 cents I feel it was well worth it.

It's nice to see the other agents get fleshed out, plus an appearance by Rachel Peng made me smile.
