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.

Starts as a Three Star Book - Ends as a Four Star

Preparing to write this review, I noticed a review tearing a strip off this book for some lame premises. That exactly sums up my impression in the first half of the book. One example is two worlds unknown to each other where they both speak English. The explanation that comes later elevates that premise from anemic to plausible. By that time, the adventure has gotten interesting enough that it is acceptable to me.

Our main character, Peter Caswell, is a physically enhanced assassin who gets his memory wiped after each mission. He tells himself that he is working for the good guys and he is a better operative without the guilt of killing bad people encumbering him. His mission this time is to another world similar to earth with a nineteenth century technology. An astronaut has killed all of her crewmates, downloaded earth's technology and set herself up on this new world as a genius. Earth is unaware of this other world and just thinks that all the people on a weapons test space mission died.

The organization that employs Peter is concerned that she will disrupt the natural technological development of that world and that may end in catastrophe.

Get ready for some twists as he meets a native spy, Melnie when attempting to assassinate the very well protected astronaut who has had ten years to endear herself to a nation on the brink of war.

This book started out as a three star book for me, but ended in four star territory and I would buy the next one as soon it comes out. It has a satisfying conclusion, but there is still important work to be done by Peter and Melnie. Earth's fate hangs in the balance.

Zero Regrets

Decided to try something a little different and I'm so glad I did. Plot twists and turns I didn't expect, great characters, nonstop action, excellent reader. Lots of wonderful little touches that stick with you.
Gratitude, Mr. Hough! I'm another fan hoping this becomes a series.
