Space Opera meets Horse Opera in this fast-paced adventure story featuring the Space Command Intelligence undercover team headed by Trader Vyx. The team, introduced in Book 4 of the A Galaxy Unknown series, and with small roles in subsequent books, is now featured in their own book as this AGU:SCI series kicks off.
This story is a mix of low-tech and high-tech as shootouts in saloons and city streets vie with spaceship chases and space battles to dominate the pages of this book. Vyx and the team are on Bledalto, a planet in Region Three, investigating slavery issues, when they become embroiled in a budding war between rival criminal organizations involved in currency counterfeiting and drug distribution.
Good Character Trader Vyx
Good plots, intrigue and plenty of bad guys & girls. If you enjoyed Jeanette Carver & SC, SCI folks you’ll enjoy this book. It was an easy read too.
DePrima does it again.
These little gems, harken back to the old serials of pre TV days. It is not hard to see his influences as writer. Space Opera escapism at its finest.
