The Illuminati, an inside joke? The lunatic fringe? Or a vast conspiracy hidden for centuries, unleashing it's power on a naive, defenseless world? It was the lousy luck of Saul Goodman, a tough, streetwise New York detective, to smell the trail in a bombed-out office - the heavy case he'd always dreaded. In a breakneck race against an awesome deadline, Goodman plunges down the trail of the ultimate conspiracy as the days fall away toward Apocalypse.

Great first experience with this book, already on the second part as I digested this one in only two days it was so engrossing. A freaky amount of synchronicity with experiences in my life made it even more engaging.

The performances were good only critique being that the mixing and mastering was poor, often breathing was very noticeable and even sirens heard at one point. Even with those little annoyances I will be listening again to this in the near future and have ordered off eBay some copies of original 70s paperbacks.

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man. When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey.

More 'canon' than an eighteenth centuary naval vessel. A Brilliant performance from the cast and great sfx make this a fast paced, tense tale of the classic movie ilk. A credit well spent!
