Publisher's Summary

Humankind has escaped a dying Earth and set out to find a new home among the stars aboard an immense generation ship affectionately named the Ark. Bryan Benson is the Ark's greatest living sports hero, enjoying retirement working as a detective in Avalon, his home module. The hours are good, the work is easy, and the perks can't be beat.
But when a crew member goes missing, Bryan is thrust into the center of an ever-expanding web of deception, secrets, and violence that overturns everything he knows about living on the Ark and threatens everyone aboard. As the last remnants of humanity hurtle toward their salvation, Bryan finds himself in a desperate race to unravel the conspiracy before a madman turns mankind's home into its tomb.

I wanted to like this book. I'll try the next one in the series. The concept is clever and the possibilities enormous. BUT. The writing needs tightening and editing, better character development,a stronger story arc and something I can only call heart. It kept almost catching fire, then fwizzle.Narration was decent, not enough to save it though.

A Little Bit of Sci-Fi, A Little Bit of Mystery

What a great story. I love how the author starts off .... Don't you just hate get interrupted during a good game? Like I said, there's a mix of scifi with mystery genres and it's not sci-fi lite, in my opinion. There is a good description of what the tech and life would be like 200 years from now on a space ark. And the mystery was right on as I didn't see a few things coming. This book stands alone, but I can't wait for the next one in this series. So come on Patrick Tomlinson and finish up the next one.

The narrator really did a good job as well. I've never listened to him before, but I've already started looking at other books he's narrated.
