There are plenty of spy agencies backstabbing one another and using people as pawns in their games. Looking forward to book 2. This book is a spy thriller set in the far future when Earth participates in a galactic society of aliens and colonies of humans. Earth has a complex governmental structure, and is corrupt to boot. The story is about a spy and double agent assigned to a space station on the edge of Earth-controlled space. Of course, I can't say much more about the plot than the premise above, or I'd have to hide my review because of spoilers. So I'll limit myself to my own reactions to the book.
For me, it starts This book is a spy thriller set in the far future when Earth participates in a galactic society of aliens and colonies of humans. For me, it starts out slow. I was mildly confused by all the organizations, their acronyms and the protagonist's relationship to them.
After about 10 pages, the pace of the novel really picks up. Like other books of this genre, there are lots of unexpected plot twists and our hero has no time to catch his breath. The author keeps us guessing about who is doing what to whom and why. It definitely earns the description "thriller". I also liked the variety of characters -- both human and alien -- who are believable and interesting. Work through the first few pages, and you'll find a very satisfying "thrilling" spy novel with all the twists and turns a science fiction environment can give.
Jun 26, David Phipps rated it liked it Shelves: This is a spy thriller mostly set on a distant space station. The protagonist is a double agent assigned to be the station manager and he has to face many challenges including alien relations, mysterious alien tech, people management, hostile rangers, and figuring out why he was sent there. My biggest complaint about the story is that I never got a good handle on the different organizations in play and what their motivations were. I did not fully understand the conspiracies discovered by the pro This is a spy thriller mostly set on a distant space station.
I did not fully understand the conspiracies discovered by the protagonist in part due to that. My understanding of all that is very hazy and I'm not sure how much of that is intentional by the author or due to my poor reading comprehension. This is the first book of a series and it is very much setting things up for later books. The conclusion of this book was not very satisfying but it did leave me wanting to read more in this series. I may wait until the full series is complete and then read it all then.

Jun 29, Brenda Mcallister rated it really liked it. This was an enjoyable book to read with humor and conspiracies everywhere. How characters kept straight who knew what was a wonder. Complications abound between too many agencies and who worked for which one - were they working together or against each other?
Totally confused by the end. Although there was action, this was a character driven story which turned and twisted like a run over snake. In the Mobile Infantry, everybody fights. Yet growing up in an artificial community of young soldiers, Ender suffers greatly from isolation, rivalry from his peers, pressure from the adult teachers, and an unsettling fear of the alien invaders. His psychological battles include loneliness, fear that he is becoming like the cruel brother he remembers, and fanning the flames of devotion to his beloved sister. Is Ender the general Earth needs?
But Ender is not the only result of the genetic experiments. The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Between the three of them lie the abilities to remake a world. If the world survives, that is. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The first contact is hostile: Now the conquerors are descending on the American heartland, demanding servile surrender—or death for all humans.
Then came the announcement that the whole thing was a hoax. Except that two agents of the most secret intelligence agency in the U. And four more agents who were sent in also disappeared. So the head of the agency and his two top agents went in and managed to get out with their discovery: What the humans know, they know. What the slugs want, no matter what, the human will do. And most of Iowa is already under their control.
Sam Cavanaugh was one of the agents who discovered the truth. Unfortunately, that was just before he was taken over by one of the aliens and began working for the invaders, with no will of his own. And he has just learned that a high official in the Treasury Department is now under control of the aliens. Since the Treasury Department includes the Secret Service, which safeguards the President of the United States, control of the entire nation is near at hand.
Without warning, giant silver ships from deep space appear in the skies above every major city on Earth. Manned by the Overlords, in fifty years, they eliminate ignorance, disease, and poverty. Then this golden age ends—and then the age of Mankind begins….
