It would be easier to kill him than to trust him.

Transporting a serial killer might seem like a simple job for CCF Homicide Investigator Kyle Tanner. After spending years apprehending murderers, he's ready to hang up his pistol. Babysitting a prisoner will bring him to Alpha Centauri, where he can search for a way to escape the CCF forever.

If he makes it.

CCF Homicide Investigator Kyle Tanner has experienced his share of untenable situations. In the previous two novels of this series, The Furnace and The Freezer, he got up close and personal with a massive sun and found himself sinking through the ice of one of Jupiter’s moons. In between these extremes exists the void, a patch of space occupied by two seemingly unrelated ships, both suffering from a mysterious power loss and computer malfunction. Once again, Tanner must solve the case in order t ...more

The worthy final of The Tanner Sequence.

My full review will be available on 30th of March 2015.

The Delivery

The 304 pages are divided into 34 consecutively numbered chapters framed by a prologue and  an
epilogue. Narration is in first person via main character Lieutenant Kyle Tanner , CCF investigator.

This is the third and as far as I know the final appearance of Lieutenant Kyle Tanner , CCF investigator.

After the hot like hellfire environment in The Furnace and the ice-cold  env

The Void is the last book in a exciting science fiction thriller series by Timothy S. Johnston. Throughout this series, I've been continually impressed by Johnston's skill in blending different genres. He ends the series on a high note. With each book, Johnston picked a fascinating setting in space, near the sun, a frozen moon and now in the last book dead space. In the area between solar systems, nothing is surrounding our hero Kyle Tanner for light years

I didn't realize The Void was the 3rd book in a series when I picked it up. Didn't affect my reading at all. It's a standalone, following Kyle Tanner the murder investigator and his girlfriend from the previous two stories further into their lives, wrapping up the series for those two characters.

Kind of a murder mystery in space. Shades of And Then There Were None, with characters being picked off but not being sure who's doing the picking. It starts out rather gory. So much so that I almost put

CCF Homicide Investigator Kyle Tanner and his girlfriend Engineer Shaheen Ramachandra are tired of living under the oppressive thumb of the CCF. His mission this time is taking the prisoner he apprehended to Alpha Centauri for execution for his crimes. En route, their ship’s systems power down and they’re stuck in deep space. They’re found by a CCF research vessel and quickly Tanner realizes not everything is as it seems on board. THE VOID is my favorite of the Tanner Sequence novels and I was i ...more

I received this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in a series, which I did not know going into it. I have not read the first two books, but this novel works as a stand-alone, although some details probably would have made more sense if I had read the other books. This is an interesting mash-up of a science fiction novel and a murder mystery. It captured my attention and I genuinely wanted to find out what happened. Some of the action sequences were a bit jumb

I liked all 3 books in this series. While they did follow a formula (deep space, 4 scientists, 4 crew) I couldn't put them down. The 3rd book does conclude the series and I will miss Tanner and seeing him evolve as a person but it does hint there is room for same universe sequels which I'd be interested in if it has the mystery element. How about a prequel about capturing the Torcher?

Timothy S. Johnston is a lifelong fan of techno-thrillers and science-fiction thrillers in both print and film. His greatest desire is to contribute to the genre which has given him so much over the past four decades. He wishes he could personally thank every novelist, screenwriter, filmmaker, director and actor who has ever inspired him to tell great stories. He has been an educator for nearly tw ...more
