Publisher's Summary

Alvin Baylor's life is not turning out as expected. He was tasting glory as a cyber-athlete, until scandal ended his career. Now he spends his days at a dead-end job in a constant hangover haze. And with the North America of 2117 fractured into corporate territories, who can blame him? 

But Alvin is about to get a life-changing proposition: serve his corporate overlords on a secretive delivery mission to an asteroid-mining colony. In exchange he'll receive a bonus that will pay off his debts and change his fortune. Or he can take option number two - the unemployment line. 

Riding an all-expense-paid cruise to the frontier of the solar system, Alvin has every reason to be optimistic. But he's in the dark on a couple of key details. The prototype he's delivering is a technological marvel that will transform the world...and a mysterious female assassin is coming to steal it. 

It's the opportunity of a lifetime...but Alvin Baylor just might pay with his life!

Alvin Baylor

The plot of the story has lots of action, a little sex, a little profanity and some violence. There are some funny parts too.

A Blast of a Listen!

A world of corporations competing against governments with people caught in the middle. Overall, a compelling combination of space opera, intrigue and a bit of action making it a blast of a listen. On top of the interweaving story elements the cast of characters were skillfully brought to life to the listener by Josh Horowitz's voice acting.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Space Adventure

Overall, I enjoyed the story and production of this audiobook. It did take me a little while to warm up to Alvin, the main character, and I wasn't particularly keen on the sound effects used with the audio. However, once I got past those things, the plot kept my interest to the end. I would listen to any sequel in this series if one came along. I thought the narrator did a good job with the audio production. A worth space/sci-fi adventure.

Fantastic Story!

Both the writing and narration are impeccable in this flawlessly executed science fiction tale. I hope there's a sequel.
