Unlike the author's previous sci-fi stories like "Flying Saucers" or
"Call Center of Doom" this is not a humorous story. It's more of a
combination of "Starship Troopers" and "Blade Runner."
has for years been fighting against a race of insectoid aliens called
the Chitt'k, but not much is known about these bugs. Jason Locke, a
trained commando and actor, is tasked with using a mechanical bug suit
to infiltrate an alien ship to find out their secrets.
on Earth, Jason's wife who is also a commando unearths a government
conspiracy and winds up dumped in the wilds of old New York, which is
pretty much a ghetto overseen by drug lords. She has to escape to try
to warn her husband of the threat.
This is a tense, entertaining
sci-fi thriller. It has enough twists and turns that you can never be
sure what's going to happen next. Highly recommended.
That is all.
