Product Description

Product Description

Remir Vorn is an enigma to most people, a ghost to others, an assassin to those of Spinward Station where he was born. He travels the galaxy in a high-tech starship, punishing the men and women who think themselves beyond or outside of the law. Yet when he meets Captain Diana Walker, a transhuman police officer, whilst hunting down a pair of ruthless dirty cops, the rules of the game are changed and Remir must travel to a deep frozen prison to rescue her brother. His reason for doing so? One of the most wanted men in the galaxy is incarcerated there.
Spinward Assassin is a tale of one man’s pursuit of justice at any price, packed with action, adventure and intrigue in a science fiction universe laced with cyberpunk, bioware, nanoware and high tech gadgets. From the seedy alleys of Athena Station to the high towers of the Corporate Zone, the man of a thousand faces unravels a secret that will alter everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars spaceward ho! 19 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
anyone who enjoyed Fate's Hand will enjoy this. A gritty, fast paced and action packed book, with some spice thrown in. Would love to see a sequel and learn more about the universe that this is set in. I feel that this only just scratches the surface and cannot wait to see the sequel. Hopefully the second book will be longer as this one seems to be over just a little too quickly! Good stuff and recommend it.

This is a very well written book,that follows the storyline very closely ,however it does not lack the intrigue of revealing the plot very slowly,also plenty of surprises as it weaves in and out ,in parts. It is a very adult book. So be warned it is not just a space tale.
Well written Darren
