4.0 out of 5 stars she pushed the envelope and became someone special 17 Mar. 2013
By David Brockert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Dirisha is a fighter. She used to be a pleasure girl on a backwater type of planet, but she pushed the envelope and became someone special. She is so special that she does not lose the fights she has, some of them to the death. It is a sort of game that those involved play at to challenge themselves to be better.
She has won another fight and contemplates taking a vacation or sabbatical. An old employer suggested she should try stopping at a place he knew of, Simplex-by-the-Sea, and with nothing else pressing, she goes there. It turns out to be a training ground for bodyguards, Matadors, at a certain school outside of town. The training is intense and only for the best fighters. The result of the training are the best bodyguards in the galaxy. The headmaster is a mysterious fellow who can do what he expects of any of the students, but he also seems to be something of a rebel. This school is really a school for revolutionaries, though not of the expected sort. He also has some rather odd plans that seem to be truly psychic, but are more well thought out plans, like Hari Sheldon of the 'Foundation' series by Isaac Asimov.
The bodyguards are hired by various groups who are powerful and influential. The idea is that the government is tottering on the brink of collapse and these bodyguards can be a force for better government in the future, along with protecting the probable leaders of that government.

This book seems to be the middle of three books, related by Dirisha and her adventures.
On another note, the sexual mores of the characters is interesting. They seem to be able to feel comfortable being in love and sexual with who they are with, and not diminish their feelings for who they are not with. Part of that is the security they have of their own persons and the security of their relationships. I kind of figure it is like reading two (2) or three (3) books at the same time: you read one, put it down, pick another and read, put it down, go back to the first and it is as if you never stopped readding.

This is Book 2 of 3. I made the mistake of *lending* the original paperback set to someone who did not believe in *returning* things Thank goodness I now have a way to re-cover & safe-guard some of my favorite books

By Prometheus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
While not necessarily action packed, the overall cleverness about the story is so intriguing! Well written and a very imaginative novel. I highly recommend this series!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story - Horrible conversion to digital! 7 Sept. 2014
By JoshR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Steve Perry, and I loved the Matador series. I have re-read them many times. When I saw they were available in Kindle, I jumped at them. I wish I had not. These books read like a bad OCR "street" copy. Multiple formatting errors, several times the word "die" instead of "the". I forgot that I had bought them about halfway through "The Man Who Never Missed" and thought I was reading someone's OCR'd version. When I went on to "Matadora" I was reminded that I had paid almost $6 a piece for these books, so I noted the errors I found...I caught 25 OCR type errors. Please let me know when someone gets around to editing these so that I can pick up the copy that I paid for. thank you.
Oh, the complete series is:
The Man Who Never Missed
Matadora
The Machiavelli Interface
The 97th Step
Albino Knife
Black Steel
Brother Death
The Musashi Flex
