3.0 out of 5 stars Easy read
Not exactly a riveting page turner but a somewhat easy satisfactory read. The plot runs smoothly along and the conclusion has the good feel factor. For me I do not think the lead character as described is strong enough to warrant me reading a sequal. However
it would be interesting to read another different novel by the same author to see how his writing develops in...

This review is from: The Outer Rims (Kindle Edition)
Marshal Matt Wallace has had a successful career keeping the peace on remote frontier planets. His new assignment is on Altair, a resort planet with top-of-the-line medical facilities. This assignment includes the opportunity for his wife Lydia to receive life-saving medical treatment. There are challenges, too. They include a deputy who wanted to be the new marshal, a staff uncertain about his leadership style, and a native population on the verge of rebellion. Also, there seems to be Something Going On in the hospital.

I wanted to like this book more than I do. But it just isn't... what it could have been. The characters are shallow and predictable. The natives, for example, are Noble Savages straight from central casting. The bad guys all seem to have the same mix of arrogance, racism, and brutish stupidity. And many of the characters change their mind about things at the drop of a helmet. The plot goes straight from Point A to Point B. There are few surprises and no intricacies.

What gets the book one more star than it deserves is that this badly-written, cliché-riddled story actually reminds me of early 20th century pulp science fiction. Like a weekend overnight in a log cabin, its blunt simplicity brings back memories of what the last generation lived with. And what we have progressed away from.
