Publisher's Summary

If space doesn't kill David Dixon, Earth will.

Astronaut David Dixon's first mission to space goes horribly awry when a gunfight breaks out on a Russian space station. He finds himself making an emergency landing from orbit and becomes the most wanted man on Earth. Desperate to unravel the plot he's found himself in, he takes his pursuers on a wild chase from space to the backstreets of Rio and beyond. Dixon's survival relies on his skills as a pilot and willingness to do whatever it takes, from crashing a passenger jet into the Mexican desert to pulling off an incredible heist in Low Earth Orbit.

Good story, but frustrating

I really enjoyed the book and the narration, but I feel a bit ripped off. Even in a series, books should stand on their own. This one "ended - I use that term only because this book ran out of words - with the uber frustrating technique of old Saturday morning cliffhangers. The protagonist was literally going off the cliff." Hope you enjoyed book one.".

WHAT?!?

Book two should be titled "Chapter Two."

A SciFi Thriller that won't let go

My mistake was starting this at night. It took a real effort of will to pause when I did because I had to sleep. Once you start this roller coaster, you won't want to get off. Great setup for a series. I hope Andrew writes the sequel!

This is the best original scifi I've read in years. The science is very believable and doesn't bog down the story. Dan Dixon is an everyman you route for from the beginning. This is a self contained story that really enjoyed. The ending was thin but everything was wrapped up, and I actually didn't guess the ending before it happened. Thanks for surprising me Andrew!

If you want a great hard SF thriller that you can't put down and demands a sequel, I recommend this book.

Amazing once again

All of Andrew Mayne's books are great and this one did not disappoint! It's the Martian but in space and instead of the world wanting to bring Mark home they want him executed as a terrorist. The action and "I can't wait to hear what happens next" were Non-Stop. <>

Totally awesome

I've read all but one of Maynes books offered on Audbile and this was easily the best. And that's saying something because I thoroughly enjoyed the others. Enjoyed those. LOVED this one. And let's give credit where it's due-the narrator. He was excellent! Anybody that can deliver a character's sarcastic and acerbic remarks and them their own is the mark of a fine reader.
Ok Maynes, we need more books, stat. And keep the great heroes and heroines coming.

Awesome Book and Awesome Narrator

Both the book and the narrator are super amazing! I haven't laughed so much while reading a book in a long time. I even found myself going back just to listen to what I had laughed at so I could keep laughing. Kyle McCarley is absolutely great at getting across the protagnanist's dry and sarcastic wit. Not many writers, in my opinion, are able to write funny sarcasm in books. Mayne excels at it!

More of a James Bond Story than Sci-Fi

This story is non-stop from the beginning. The main character is an astronaut who gets sucked into espionage and becomes a wanted man without even knowing what is going on. However, he is able to keep ahead of both the police and the bad guys who either want what he has or want him dead. Highly recommended for anyone who can accept a hero who beats incredible odds while just barely staying alive.

OMG this book is awesome

Take the Martian, add in a fast-paced thriller and blend. I couldn't put this book down. The writing and the narration was top-notch. This is the best sci-fi book I've listened to do far this year. I'm off to buy Andrew Mayne's entire backlist. I'm so glad I bought this book.
