The Hunted Assassin by Paul B. Kohler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
From the very start the title comes into play and the hunt has begun. Martin Wheeler a former operative of the security organisation GSA, is running a coffee shop on a space station but finds his past from ten years ago is catching him up, but this time he is the target. Moving at a fast pace the author delivers several great action sequences as Martin defies the attempts on his life. This is combined with a description of life on a space station in the future to make his escape from danger all the more exciting. Not content with just trying to murder the author introduces some serious twists to the story with Martin’s estranged daughter being brutally abducted. This is very cleverly worked in with the normal everyday problems we see today on present Earth – greed, corruption, drugs and violence. In all this is a very exciting look at life in the future and tells us that even although many space stations and a city on the moon can be built no one has been able solve these very old society issues.
