Publisher's Summary

Trouble infiltrated the Harakens' capital city of Espero, in the form of New Terra criminal gangs who grew wealthy and powerful on the moons of Ganymede, hiding behind the cover of an ill-conceived mining charter. The gangs brought stims and addictive hallucinogenic drugs to Espero, distributing them to the young on the planet.
Christie Racine and her friends visited a hidden club rumored to be a source of the dangerous drugs and have run afoul of the criminals running the illegal establishment. Kidnapped and transported out of Hellébore's system aboard a freighter, the girls become desperate to free themselves.
Alex Racine, Christie's brother and president of the Harakens, races to discover where the girls were taken. The trail leads Alex from Espero to the pleasure domes of Jolares, a moon orbiting a gas giant in Oistos, the New Terrans' home system. Alex's search is complicated by the discovery of not one, but three sets of pleasure domes, each on its own moon and run by its own criminal mastermind.
It becomes a dangerous game of hide-and-seek as the Harakens attempt to recover their girls and locate the biochemist who created the dangerous hallucinogen, without panicking the kidnappers. The Harakens' efforts are complicated by the duplicitous scheme of "Mr. Blue" and "Sniffer", two gang leaders, who seek to steal the domes of "Craze", the third gang leader, in a dangerous double-cross.
Alex and his people thought things couldn't get any more complicated until they discover the gangs have gone to war with deadly stunners and plasma rifles in a fight for possession of the Haraken girls, who are caught between the rivals.

Gangs and Drugs

I did not find this book as enjoyable as the other books in the series. It is because of the theme of the story. The story is about New Terran criminal gangs, drugs and human trafficking. Alex Racine, the President of Haraken, finds out his sister, Christie, has been kidnapped by the human traffickers and has been taken off world. Alex sets out to get her back and shut down the criminal gangs.

This book is well written, but I did not enjoy the story about criminal gangs and corrupt politicians. I know that people will be the same on Earth or wherever they go, but I would prefer more about the cool silver ships and space adventures. It maybe my mood that turned me off the story and I am sure many readers will enjoy the story. I wonder what will happen to Miranda? Can Z create a new SAGE or is that even possible?

The book is fifteen hours and fifteen minutes long. Grover Gardner does an excellent job narrating the book. Gardner is an award-winning audiobook narrator.

maybe its me...

Would you try another book written by S. H. Jucha or narrated by Grover Gardner?

sorry but I struggled to keep interested so.. nope

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the last few books in the series but I just couldn't get into this one.. it dragged on & on, the lack of concern at the kidnapping of a sister was laughable.. im writing this without having finished the book which in my opinion is just rude.. but I just cant be bothered to read it anymore.. don't care what happens to the characters.. find the Chicago gangster voices irritating and have totally lost interest at this point.. im going to put it on hold in case I ever get bored & desperate and give the next book a miss..

Continuing Lovely SiFi

If you could sum up Espero in three words, what would they be?

This is a great book in the continuing development of this Silver Ship series. I enjoyed this story, and true to nature, life does not always go well.

The speed camera was wrong

oh dear god, it appears the wheels have fallen off on this novella. The authors musings about technology evolving faster than the law leading to miscarriages of justice. Was there a speed camera and GPS involved? To all about to read this don't, pretend the series stopped with sol.
