A Message from Graham Keeler


I have always disliked stories where the protagonists display amazing talents, survive massive physical punishment or get out of impossible situations, so, apart from accepted science fiction extensions to known laws of nature like hyperspace travel, I have tried to keep everything completely realistic, with the protagonists facing believable situations and keeping in the main to the known laws of physics, yet writing a story with plenty of action in the plot.

Description: Larry is an undercover agent for the Interstellar Exploration Programme, when he stumbles on a covert operation by Zilon, a ruthless member of the Galactic Union. He finds himself framed by the Ziloni and a fugitive from the Union.

Karen is seeking the man responsible for the death of her sister. But one simple case of mistaken identity, and a reckless decision suddenly sees her life in turmoil. She discovers that she is a stowaway on Larry’s spacecraft and her future is now irrevocably linked to his.

Larry’s future looks bleak. His only chance of finding evidence that will clear his name entails a near-suicidal invasion of a Ziloni military base. Karen has no choice but to accompany Larry on his mission, where she is thrown into the strange environment of the Union. Together they face the ultimate test as they battle with the collective might of the Ziloni and the Galactic Union.
