A government whistle blower is sacked. The night he agrees to work for private enterprise, a body drops a train ticket at his feet. Apparently unfamiliar with the adage regarding curiosity, Frank Compton embarks on a galactic wide adventure.
Frank’s background is a bit sketchy. He appears to have been some type of agent which explains his many skills. Zahn does his normal good job of creating a reasonable scenario (reasonable based on my love of scifi perhaps) and crafting a wealth of unique alien characters.
The plot moved well and there was plenty of action. It was a good story and I look forward to the next book in the five book series.
I recommend it.
