This book in the Starfist series was not exactly the strongest card in the deck. Actually I was somewhat disappointed. The title, as well as the book blurb, led me to believe that this would be some high-tech action but actually it’s quite the opposite.

I read Technokill by David Sherman. Sherman was writing to entertain his readers. I know this because he tells a story that he came up. The theme of the book is: Just because politicians have power, does not mean they can get away with crimes they organize.
