The first Terradox book was pretty good, I thought (but not as good as Contact.) It had a certain mystery about it and, even though the nice-guy-turned-bad-guy thing which was central to the plot isn't a new idea in fiction, it was well executed.
The problem with this book is that there isn't really anything new in it. Although the action takes place on space stations, the story could equally well have been set on the high seas, or an isolated island. For a science fiction novel the science is pretty questionable, and the plot isn't strong enough to disguise that fact, as it was in the first book.
This isn't a bad book by any means, but if I'm going to pay seven quid to borrow a book, which is what Audible's service amounts to, it's got to be a whole letter better than "not a bad book."
