Publisher's Summary

When a disgruntled astronaut decides to get revenge, all hell breaks loose! By the time the final flight of the Russian space capsule, Soyuz, docks at the international space station, Derek Johnson - the oldest astronaut to fly in space - is sick with a severe case of food poisoning that does not respond to antibiotics, and he soon dies. Recruited to assist NASA’s medical team, Dr. Bob Kramer, a forensic toxicologist and expert witness, concludes that the cause of Johnson’s death is a mutated form of bacteria that is not normally found in nature.

In Soyuz: The Final Flight - a captivating, pause-resisting, science fiction thriller - space exploration, mental illness, and forensic toxicology collide at the intersection of good and evil as Kramer unravels the source of a mysterious incident and suspicious deaths aboard the space station.

The book is a finalist for best science fiction novel in the 2018 Book Talk Radio Club Awards and for best second novel in the 2018 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

Excellent must read

I originally met the author Harry A. Milman at my local Barnes and Noble bookstore, where he was promoting this book. During our conversation about the contents of this book, I stated that I no longer purchase hardback copies and only prefer audiobooks. We then discussed that he was in the process of getting that process started. He took my name down along with my fiancée and said he would inform us when it was released. After a year or so I received an email personally from Mr Milman and purchased the audiobook immediately after reading the email! Great character development and an all around amazing story. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone! I also look forward to reading his previous A Death at Camp David book and future stories as well. Thank you Audible and a big thank you to Harry A. Milman for presenting this book and having it read by R.C. Bray.

Remind me to never go to space

First and foremost I got this book for 1 reason R.C. Bray. If R.C. narrates a book it has to be good....and this one did not disappoint. R.C. does a fantastic job bringing the characters to alive for the listeners. Soyuz was very well written and had me guessing what would happen next. I will definitely look for other books by Harry A. Milman. If they are narrated by R.C. then they could already be in my library!!

Anticlimactic and Short with an Amazing narrator

RC Bray can narrate any story and make it amazing. While thrilling, the ending of this story was anti climactic and seemed short.

RC Bray kept it alive

warning! Slight spoiler alert!

First off, I love listening to RC Bray and his innate ability to differentiate between each and every character he personifies. You can tell just by hearing his vocal range and accent when reading, just who it is he’s dialoguing. Amazing job yet again.
The story however of this book just seemed tiring and uninteresting a good majority of the time. People dying and the plot to find out who is doing all the killing is ok but the end just sunk it for me. Personally I think more dialogue from the culprit and somehow a manner in which to throw it off of them is better than just not including him/her in most of the story. Also, the end labeling them as a psychological title rather than just a clever and maniacal extremist would have, to me, made a much better story

Short, sweet, too the point and features RCB!

As the title of this review indicates, RCBray is yet again the hero ( but not the only one ) of this contemporary scifi drama. Sharply written, with some fascinating plot diversions/surprises, it is clearly well researched and delivered as only RC Bray can do.

Some of the plot devices do meander and are a bit of a stretch, but on balance with is a very solid ( if not short and compressed ) offering that I highly recommend.

Finished it only because I kept hoping...

The only redeeming feature is the excellent Mr Bray as narrator. This is not science fiction but a poorly contrived thriller that often seems like a nonfiction manual. cardboard characters, deus ex machina resolution, gratuitous bland sex scenes, plot holes galore, etc ad nauseam. Thank goodness it's Audible and I can return it.

Not usually this caustic, but my word, how could this have been nominated for any award?

Awesome narration, but it didn’t make up for a bad story!

I love RC Bray as a narrator, and I often find myself taking a risk on what appear to be average books, just to hear more of his soothing tones as a driving companion.

Sadly, even the great Mr Bray couldn’t compensate for what was a weak story, with a really thin plot! Unrealistic (like someone who is an ‘engineer’ but no one knows which kind, could be on the ISS). It also had a few long parts which were just irrelevant, and seemed like a thin excuse to write in some sex scenes!

You pay your money, and you take your chances. I’m sure some people will like it, but I think it’s a poor story, with a weak plot! Only worth buying if you want to hear more RCB.

Hmmm..

If it wasn’t for R.C narrating i would have turned off a long time ago. So many holes in the story but worth a listen if you have some credits to use.
