This isn't the kind of book that I usually read. However, my friend and I like to send each other weird things, and this cover definitely qualified! So I read it.

It was surprisingly ok. I liked the world of Demeter City, and I found the idea of a universe where people travel to other planets interesting. There was a general sense of suspense and mystery concerning the main conflict: murder!

The first thing to say about this third and final novel in Gerry Anderson's space precinct series is that it is by far the best edited of the series. I didn't spot a single spelling or grammar mistake, and the other two are littered with them, so a huge thumbs up there.

I am very disappointed. The other two Space Precinct books are very good and entertaining plus for the most part Bischoff seemed to get the characters.
