Being that Aaron Conners is a writer for computer games, I wasn't expecting too much from this novel, but I was pleasantly surprised!! Having played the Tex Murphy games, and being a big fan, this book had alot to live up to. Aaron Conners is a good storyteller. He keeps you turning pages by his first person prose of the bumbling Tex Murphy, and the action is very well paced. Overall, a good Sci-fi / detective noir outing!!
