After a century in deep freeze, the original Jefferson Nighthawk is unthawed and cured of his disease. Unforunately, he's 60 years old and slowing down and has lots of old enemies on his trail, along with up and comers wanting to make a name at his expense.

Heinlein is one of my favorite authors. :-) Still, things pick up at the end and there is a moderately clever twist that is supposed to wrap up the story. It will ...more

Any fan of gun-slinging, futuristic, space westerns should scoop up the Widowmaker books. Resnick has a gritty, unpredictable style one has to admire.
