But Mayne offers some respite for his lonely lighthouse worker with some fine action, interesting (and quite funny) alien visitors and a past love interest that prevents the story from being all about the loneliness in space. Also enjoyable are the space politics in play here and an impending war that he just might be able to prevent. Maybe.
It's really a fun read, folks. Recommended.
From the moment David Dixon witnesses his astronaut crew supervisor (and mentor) stow a gun in his space suit, the action doesn't let up in a rip-roaring story that begins in space and rockets around pretty much the entire Western Hemisphere before coming to a stunning conclusion.
Mayne also manages to insert a ton of space program anecdotes, not to mention actual science, that makes the book every more interesting, all without slowing the pace a bit.
Magician, TV star, podcaster, writer. Geez man, take a nap or something..
A great read!
Very quickly it grab on to my attention and demanded that I finish it. I look forward to the next one.
If you haven't read his Jessica Blackwood books, jump on that right away. You will not be disappointed. The audiobooks are great.
Follow Andrew on periscope. He does live q&a fairly often and they worth it, especially if you are a writer.
In the near future, the MC, David Dixon is an civilian astronaut, working for a commercial space corporation. David, having been passed over by the military due to his then deficient eyesight, took a longer route in becoming a pilot and an astronaut. As a standby replacement crewman, suddenly activated for his first flight to space, the eclectic astronaut finds himself inexplicably in the center of a secret military espionage operation gone sideways.
Mr. Wayne creates a action filled plot, with characterizations that in the main, hold interest. The humor is unexpectedly decent, causing actual laughter. The author's attempted balancing act, of trying to be "PC," while not appearing so, fails miserably. It comes across as small and feckless. This is a major flaw of the writing and story. There is an extended scene in Brazil, where the MC is helped by a trio young, dirt poor children on a garbage heap. The simple sincerity and honesty of this narrative scene came across as heartfelt, real, and was not saccharine or contrived. It was moving. This shows the author, Mr. Wayne has talent and skill in his writing, if he stays away from the equivocation.
"Station Breaker," is highly recommended and was fully read via Kindle Unlimited.
