This story begins on a generation ship, where Art Stoddard is the sole news reporter for the city-sized population. Lately, he's been increasingly censored by the authoritarian Crew, and when an underground organization kidnaps him to share a terrible truth, things turn really nasty.

This is a face-paced SF novel, with jailbreaks, rocket-rides and wilderness adventures on a strange planet.

It also features clear themes. Freedom of the Press is foremost, and the need to prioritize freedom over security plays a part, too.

It took me a little while to warm up to the main character, as he starts the novel as a rather passive type. It was worth sticking with the story though, as Art discovers he can take action to live up to his principles.

Recommended for anyone who likes SF with a rapid pace and a clear message.
