    Slingshot is a love story - about a man, a woman, another man, another woman, some gender bending...and a machine, the largest ever built. It is an adventure - about following a dream, the ocean-deep, outer space. Slingshot is about constructing the first space launch-loop, stretching 2,000 km between Baker and Jarvis Islands in the Equatorial Pacific. It's about high finance, intrigue, unlimited ambition, heroism, fanaticism, betrayal...and about opening space to the common person.

    Apparently yet another series begins...

    There is a great deal of redundancy and verbiage that I feel clutters up the story.

    Jon Stock takes his international exploration team to Saturn's moon, Iapetus, which Earth scientists have determined may be an artifact. Following launch, they discover Saeed Ismail, a Jihadist stowaway, who hopes to sabotage the mission. They arrive at Iapetus, determine it is a derelict starship, and eventually meet with the Founders, descendants of the starship builders. Their revelations impact the entire Solar System with momentous implications.

    Not bad if you are a teenage boy I suppose

    Highly unlikely. Disappointing in every way.
