The fifth entry in Star Trek veteran Shatner's science fiction detective series ( TekLab ; Tek Vengeance ) features all the elements that have made the other episodes so successful and so eminently forgettable: cardboard characters, an unlikely, action-heavy plot and futuristic trappings as tired as an old boot. Jake Cardigan and his goofy sidekick/partner Sid Gomez are investigating the disappearance of Alicia Bower, heiress to the Mechanix International robotics fortune. Her family believes she is off on another of her promiscuous adventures, but her current boyfriend, Barry Zangerly, remains convinced her absence is more sinister and hires Cardigan and Gomez to find out. Of course, the villains make their presence known, roughing up Zangerly and trying to kill Cardigan. And of course Cardigan and Gomez sidestep all major threats and get to the heart of the conspiracy, which features such twists as an android duplicate of Alicia Bower, a sadistic brain surgeon and such bits of predictable dialogue as, "The odds are very much against our nearly getting killed every time we investigate something together." Readers who have found something enjoyable in previous Jake Cardigan adventures will likely find it here as well.

Fifth in the series (Tek Vengeance, 1992, etc.) featuring private detective Jake Cardigan and his sidekick Sid Gomez. Here, Alicia Bower, daughter of the world's wealthiest robotics industrialist, has disappeared. Jake and Sid, aided by Jake's son Dan and Dan's girlfriend Molly, track Alicia to the Mentor Psych Center, where Dr. Isaac Spearman shrinks heads in unpleasant ways- -in this case, obliging Alicia to forget that she overheard details of a conspiracy involving a US government agency, the ubiquitous Teklords, and killer robots built by her father. It's all very cozy and familiar by now, as Shatner endeavors to turn Trekkies into Tekkies. The Tek telemovie reportedly in the works should help, too. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
