I love the Sci-fi gangster aspect of this book, it was a good read and a breath of fresh air see a author mix up different genres. Any sibling could relate to the main character. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I'm officially a fan, it is a rarity to see an author try new things, It was a great introduction into the mind of Mr. Jones's world! I can't wait to digg into shattered next!

This is about a man left with his brother's debt to a gangster. He undertakes to deliver an unidentified package as part payment and a second gang boss, after attempting to buy it, tries to steal it. The story seems to stop rather than end and the debt is not fully paid. As this is a novella I felt that there was plenty of scope to tie up the ends of the story and make it into a full length book. It doesn't really read like science fiction but like a gangster story transferred to space.

This sci-fi gangster novella veers away considerably from the usual hard hitting material a la 'Shattered the Donna Harp Series' Karl Jones tends to produce.
Although the concept is interesting it fails to deliver and meanders into mediocrity. The authors seem unable to decide whether they are presenting a Boardwalk Empire meets space colony or a Hans Solo with sidekicks story. As it is both subplots meld into one with neither winning the trophy.
Clearly the creativity and capacity to create is th...more

In the dark of the night and the still of the evening you'll find Karl Jones writing furiously to exercise his dark muse to the delight of his fans.

Specializing in Crime and Horror thrillers, he refers to himself as a loner, haunted by the stories he pens and driven to push the boundaries until all lovers of the genres have no choice but to sleep with one eye open.

Karl explores the dark side of hu...more
