The seventh of Shatner's popular Tek novels puts future detective Jake Cardigan and his partner Sid Gomez through the wringer, along with the rest of the cast, not all of whom survive. Someone is obtaining illegal weapons from a California research firm and disposing of people who know too much. Cardigan and Gomez have to find out who the culprits are and stop them without getting themselves killed, getting Jake's son and his girlfriend killed, or attracting the wrath of the U.S. government, not to mention several other authorities, including the Southern California police. This book does not add any new dimensions to the future world of the series and, with its political overtones and pacing, is more a technothriller than, like its series mates, a classic hard-boiled detective story set in the future. It is, however, as readable as any of its predecessors, and Shatner includes enough hints on future developments that we can safely assume many more Tek novels are forthcoming. Roland GreenFrom Library Journal:
Private investigators Jake Cardigan and Sid Gomez follow a money-trail that leads them into danger in this sixth installment of a popular series. Purchase according to demand.
