Review from the prestigious


Steven Burgauer writes old style science fiction in which heroes and villains are easily identified, the action is fast and furious, and the plot twists and turns uncontrollably.  His newest is the story of a crack team of military specialists who discover that the brilliant but warped Cassandra Mubarak is planning to use advanced scientific devices to seize control of the world.  To stop her, they must infiltrate her heavily guarded headquarters and rescue the fair maiden in distress.

This is action adventure written straightforwardly and not meant to be heavily literary or provide pithy commentary on the state of humanity.
