Operation Masquerade

Operation Masquerade
by Nigel Mitchell
(5/5 stars)

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."

Humanity 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.

Meanwhile 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.
