Wow! Honestly, I could use every exclamatory word in the dictionary, and it wouldn't be a good enough word to describe how excellent this novel is. I picked it up yesterday- just to get a feel for it...read it deep into the midnight hours and kept on reading until it was finished...now, I'm sorry it's over.

In the far, galactic future there is a ruling class of citizen. They are so wealthy, so elite, they've managed to wipe out any ambition whatsoever- why worry about ambition when everything in the universe is already at their fingertips? The only thing that really matters to this jaded "Society" is... The Scavenger Hunt- a hunt so costly, so deadly, it takes place only once every twenty years.

Bred DeVrie has reluctantly entered his spaceship, the Honey B, and his all female crew, into this years scavenger hunt, at the insistence of his spoiled twin sister, Tyla. Tyla is the epitome of high society with all of it's flaws (arrogance, entitlement, pride), but deep inside, she is just a young woman who feels the need to win the hunt for the sake of her family's honor and in memory of her parents, who died twenty years earlier, while competing in the hunt.

It was the hunt itself that took my breath away. Each contestant is tasked with the acquisition of rare and deadly objects from worlds scattered throughout the galaxy. From the dream booths of post apocalyptic, Lethe, to the forests of Ootyoce, the warring planet, Eclipsiascus, to the dragon world, Gondra, our intrepid crew meets each challenge with wit and unsurpassed bravery.

Enter the android, Jonathon, and a ruthless competitor, named Amber Jusser; a fantastically difficult challenge now enters a whole new level of scary...

"Stephen Goldin's scifi adventure novel Scavenger Hunt is one hell of a ride in adventure land! It takes Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous and transports it from star to star as the super-rich seek to collect rare items they need in order to win their society's creme de la creme event, the Scavenger Hunt. All else takes second place to winning, including morality, ethics, dealing with aliens, and intentionally trying to kill your opponents. That is, until Tyla de Vrie and her brother Brad enter the contest with a tough ship, an all-woman crew that loves to get laid, and a determination to redeem the death of their parents. But money is not everything, as they all come to realize when an android--a biological duplicate of normal humans--joins their crew. Johnathan the android turns out to be the joker in the deck of remarkable characters aboard the starship Honey B. The nasties are there of course, and well done they are. But the surprises of alien life found during the multiple stops of the Hunt are wonderfully developed, the alien cultures are distinct, and the high society's fixation on appearances and looks is delightfully punctured. While Tyla and Brad may be trillionaires, they don't act like super-rich folks. They act like people who can be conflicted, who need love, and who need a better reason to live than just to win a stupid contest. Goldin's Hunt reminds us of how hard the journey to discovering one's humanity can be, and how rewarding the eventual discovery can be. Outstanding story told wonderfully well."
