The adjective that first comes to mind when I think about Ian Healy's TROUBLESHOOTERS is fun. Healy has embraced a future not of doom-and-gloom, but of technological marvels. Sure, it's plenty gritty, as cyberpunk often is, but the future also has the best toys.

TROUBLESHOOTERS is a caper novel with three heroes. Angel is the hit man, Haiwee is the hacker, and Camaro is the driver. They are blackmailed into stealing three rare glass bottles for a wealthy collector, and have to bring back at least one intact. The caper takes them all over the globe, and even into space, as they race to retrieve the bottles.

The pacing is spot-on, flyng along without ever feeling overwhelming. The ending seemed slightly rushed, however. The third caper didn't feel quite as big as the first two. There is a major change late in the book (won't spoil it here), but there doesn't seem to be any repercussions from it, nor is it mentioned again. This is a small quibble in an otherwise well-written novel page-turner. The action scenes were breathlessly exciting without ever becoming confusing. The main characters were lovable and real, and the scenes between the three of them were my favorite ones in the book.

I highly recommend this novel for fans of cyberpunk, especially if you are over the dystopian visions of the future. If you're looking for a fun read with true characters to care about, this is the book for you.

With every obsession comes a price. Fortunately Mr. Whitecastle has the money. He hires assassin Angel, brain-modded hacker Haiwee, and monowheel-racing Camaro to help him recover one of three antique bottles...and destroy the other two.

Selfish? Petty? Insane?

They're not there to judge. They're just there to get paid.

Fast-paced, alternately smart-aleck and deadly SF heist action.

A fast-paced action movie of a story, Troubleshooters is one you will not want to put down until you are done. Full of great action scenes and humor, it will keep your heart racing and a smile on your face, right until the very unsuspected punchline. The story will leave you hoping for more stories of the Troubleshooters team.
