Book Description

6 Dec 2013
Gliese 876d Station Alpha: a vast hollow world of twin rotating cylinders thirty kilometres long and eight in diameter that orbits a barren planet. Law Enforcement Officer Erris Fermion has two mysteries to solve – find the Ghost that stalks Grey Seven and that may have caused the deaths of two people, including Fermion’s predecessor, and halt a weapons-running operation. Hindered rather than helped by an upper echelon of Station Command that includes the annoying Sub-Commander Airecloud, the inept Captain Gracilisk and the hostile Senior Lieutenant Dubnium, Fermion has to rely on his own intuition, technology in the shape of his personal thought-rec and the assistance of Alpha’s Security Chief Jok Gemsmith and its Chief MO, Dr Zaliah Flekstart – whose expert but questionable surgical intrusion appears to have cured his inner ear imbalance but left him with more than food for thought...

4.0 out of 5 stars sci fi thriller intelligent and funny 2 Feb 2014
By Suzy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed escaping from my earthbound train to this futuristic space station. The plot was good enough to keep me turning the pages. I would highly recommend this to any one who really knows and loves science and or science fiction. I think there were probably some in jokes that went over my head. I am not sure that it adds anything to the su of knowledge in the world but it was certainly a good read.
