"Congratulations! Last Breath is fantastic! I absolutely could not put the book down and I'm sure every reader will feel the same way ... The story line kept you guessing ... This book should be right on the shelves beside Clive Cussler's action/adventures. In fact, it might very well deserve a shelf of its own! Thank you for a very enjoyable book and keep 'em coming!" -- WKII 1070 am Radio, by R. Williams, Program Director
"Last Breath: Space Station Rescue is a terrific and ever-so-plausible story of science, politics, and courage." -- The Midwest Book Review, December 10, 1999
Author S.P. Cammick has written an exciting and eye-opening read ... Cammick has included in his story the essence of space travel with all the tangents of getting into orbit, living in the space modules and escaping the world of space living to return to Mother Earth ... Cammick's knowledge of space jargon, supplemented by his knowledge of business, politics and the media, prompts a reader interested in these facets of our current values to climb aboard this novel and blast off to the current thinking of space's future, present political and international views and efforts to support the space program. The patches of the endeavors included in the story bring out the classic American saga of what Americans and their ingenuity can produce to complete the quilt of success. I heartily recommend this read for every adult, every youth over the age of 12 and anyone interested in our next pioneer efforts in space ... Congratulations to S.P. Cammick, who has given you and me a space-eye view of America today ... -- Sun Herald, 06/09/99
Stephen Cammick's novel, "Last Breath," blasts off into the next millennium with a fascinating look at space technology, medical science and politics. In 2028, Jake Marshall, commander of a space science lab, is faced with two problems: lack of funding for the program by a government paralyzed by political extremists, coupled by the possible end of the production of ... the cancer drug ... which can be manufactured only in space ... Time after time, Marshall is able to overcome danger and possible failure. The pace at which he is called upon to face and overcome problems is like a rocket being launched. Too good to be true? Maybe, but reading this well done adventure will be rewarding because of the cadence of the dialogue, the cast of good guys who do the right thing, and the exciting plot. It begs to be made into a movie. -- Lois Wade, Fort Myers Beach Observer, June 23, 1999
About the Author
Having faced many near catastrophes, he has a keen understanding of the many self-contained shipboard systems. The challenges of making "jerry rigged" emergency repairs on the high seas is not unlike that facing astronauts stranded in space. This experience, plus a life-long infatuation with the NASA space program has resulted in a book that is much more than just a good read. As the future unfolds, the story line will become more of a prophecy of the future than current fiction.
