Summary

Some things are better off forgotten.

Sheriff Hayden Duke was born on the Pilgrim, and he expects to die on the Pilgrim, like his father, and his father before him.

That's the way things are on a generation starship centuries from home. He's never questioned it. Never thought about it. And why bother? Access points to the ship's controls are sealed, the systems that guide her automated and out of reach. It isn't perfect, but he has all he needs to be content.

Until a malfunction forces his engineer wife to the edge of the habitable zone to inspect the damage.

Until she contacts him, breathless and terrified, to tell him she found a body, and it doesn't belong to anyone on board.

Until he arrives at the scene and discovers both his wife and the body are gone.

The only clue? A bloody handprint beneath a hatch that hasn't opened in hundreds of years.

Until now.

LOL what a romp

This book is so bad it reminds me of Snakes On A Plane, or maybe Sharknado. It borrows shamelessly from every sci-fi classic, past and present. I’m torn whether or not to buy the sequel, but it’s so bad it’s good.

Surprised

At first I thought it was going to be a police thriller. Then I thought it was going to be a monster story. It turned out to be much more. I have already downloaded the next in the series. Well done.

Great Narration, weak story.

J. Davis brings a flat character to life with his narration. My primary gripe with this story is that it doesn't flesh the main charater out as much as I'd like. The synopsis seems all the back story we get regarding our protagonist, and we don't hear enough about his ideas, ideals and supporting characters to build an opinion about him before the action starts. Once characters that have a sort of environment about them are introduced, they're just as easily thrown away for the sake of the story, sacrificing character development for plot movement.

Can’t wait for the next one!

I bought this book on a whim, as I thought the story seemed like it would hold my interest. And it did. I can’t wait for the next book to be released on Audible! Their was plenty of action, and the narrator was very good!

Great Story, Awesome Narrator

Loved the story and the narrator. The narrator does a really good job with reflecting the characters emotions. I almost didn’t sleep all night because I couldn’t stop listening. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

The Fatal Flaw of "What if's"

This was a frustrating listen. The plot had so much potential but was derailed by the authors incessant use of "what if" narrative of Capt. Obvious questions. Removing all the sentences containing "what if.." would have made this a much better story. Excellent concept with unexpected plot twists, but in need of some serious editing.

New narrator needed

The overall story was very good however, the narrator made it hard to listen to. Character voices were horrible. Not going to purchase book 2. This book/story needs a better narrator.
