    Athena Hera Sinistra never wanted to go to space. Never wanted see the eerie glow of the Powerpods. Never wanted to visit Circum Terra. Never had any interest in finding out the truth about the DarkShips. You always get what you dont ask for. Which must have been why she woke up in the dark of shipnight, within the greater night of space in her father's space cruiser, knowing that there was a stranger in her room.

    Richard says: "Fun original sci-fi"

    While not perfect, Dark Ship Thieves is a refreshing fun and original sci-fi with a charming female protagonist and great reader.

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    What disappointed you about The Chopin Manuscript?

    A fun concept that has brief moments of fun but over all the story is too disjointed, too many characters to be anything other than an exercise in writing.

    The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the Los Angeles Times to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist.

    James H. Breda says: "Tres Bon"

    What would have made The Vintage Caper better?

    A promising start leads down hill rapidly to a pointless story that is neither mystery, comedy suspense or romance.

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes


    What character would you cut from The Vintage Caper?

    all
