When an alien spaceship crashes in a wooded park area of Washington DC, the pilot is injured and his cargo, a shape-shifting animal escapes. The shape-shifter immediately kills a girl, taking on her shape - and to an extent - her identity. Soon, unexplained deaths occur in and around the area and it is not long before three people accidently find - and enter - the hidden (cloaked) spaceship.

A rather enjoyable read which was spoiled by a few turns which contradict human nature. For example if a f...more

I just got a Kindle recently, and picked up this book from Amazon for free. It kept my glued to it as I raced through the chapters.

An alien ship crash lands in a Washington D.C. park. One bad alien escapes and terrorizes the area, while a good alien needs to hunt him down. Most of the book revolves around a few people who know the truth and are struggling to get back a captured friend and warn others while not getting eaten in the process.

This book is a mix of Sci-Fi, thriller, horror, and humor...more

Lost Cargo is not your typical sci-fi story. It begins with the crash of an interstellar vehicle in Rock Creek Park in Washington DC. Hooked me easily, and not just because I was raised in the suburbs of DC. Soon we learn that the witness to this crash will not be our protagonist. Instead, college student Travis finds a hidden camera bag, camera inside, and the pictures it contains. He has a hard time convincing anyone that these are indeed pictures of a crashed UFO, but happy chance gives him L...more

I struggled to finish this one. It's a bit like a horror movie. It's tempting to say "like a bad horror movie" but since I don't like horror, they all seem bad to me. Anyway, the characters in this novel behave inexplicably, and lots of strings are left dangling. As other reviewers have mentioned, the whole thing with the dentist is weird and leads nowhere. I would add the same is true for Monroe- we never find out why he seemed connected to the alien, unless it's because his grandfather told hi...more

Awesome story

This was a almost can't put it down book. But I did but still it took only three days to finish. I would recommend this book to any friends. It would make a great movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading LOST CARGO. Admittedly, the title drew me in first with its obvious tie with that of my adventure MACEDONIA PASSAGE: DANGEROUS CARGO. Kind of a silly reason to pick up a book, I know, but who's to say what inspires us to pick up a book.
You can look up the book to get the synopsis, but I'll say it was one of those books that keeps you turning the pages. A good old-fashioned science fiction adventure.

This book was actually pretty decent! Cheesy, but decent. I liked the fact that I couldn't predict what would happen and some parts left me laughing out loud while others left me grimacing with horror! I would of liked to have seen more of the alien technician though. He was suppose to hunt down and recapture his lost cargo, but the human characters tended to track it more than the alien. Anyway, I thought it was pretty good!

It was a slow start. About half way in you really got attached to Travis and Lexie the two main characters. By that time you couldn't put the book down. Wondering if they were going to be attacked. Or if Travis's sister and husband would be since they moved into the same building as the monster. And if the little blue man was ever going to release Lexie's brother Burke from the space ship.

Years back I read many Dean Koontz books, (before he went to the psychobabble type of stories) This book reminded me of the old Dean Koontz. Far fetched, but not that far fetched that it isnt believable. I would recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Koontz/King type books.

I really enjoyed this book. It was an interesting story. Entertaining, easy read.

Fun little monster thriller. Only tangentially SF, but hearkens back to the old pulps.
