Publisher's Summary

Technologically enhanced superspy Peter Caswell has been dispatched on a top-secret assignment unlike any he's ever faced. A spaceship that vanished years ago has been found, along with the bodies of its murdered crew - save one. Peter's mission is to find the missing crew member, who fled through what appears to be a tear in the fabric of space. Beyond this mysterious doorway lies an even more confounding reality: a world that seems to be Earth's twin. Peter discovers that this mirrored world is indeed different from his home and far more dangerous. Cut off from all support, and with only days to complete his operation, Peter must track his quarry alone on an alien world. But he's unprepared for what awaits on the planet's surface, where his skills will be put to the ultimate test - and everything he knows about the universe will be challenged in ways he never could have imagined.

Zero characters, zero plot, zero action, zero

From the beginning the premise sucks. This guy kills and than his memory is wiped and he is okay with that. The reader is constantly being told things and is never shown things. Soon into the second hour, I thought it might get interesting, but than the book switches to a different part and a different main character and we get more telling. I tried hard to go the minimum three hours I try to give every book, but I could tell another half hour was not going to change my mind.

- Jim "The Impatient" "My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books."

Please, let this be the first of a series!

Really dug this book a lot. The author has a talent for super-imaginative world building, and the main characters are interesting, sympathetic, and real. I cared about them.
The story goes places you'll never expect; there are not one, but several plot twists that left me gaping and going, WHAT?? (but in a good way)
Very nicely performed by Gideon Emery, who handles vocal characterization of both male and female characters quite well. Lots of cool action, some thought provoking ideas and moments, and an ending that both satisfies and leaves things wide open for "the further adventures of..."
Wholeheartedly recommended.
