Publisher's Summary

Trouble infiltrated the Harakens' capital city of Espero, in the form of New Terra criminal gangs who grew wealthy and powerful on the moons of Ganymede, hiding behind the cover of an ill-conceived mining charter. The gangs brought stims and addictive hallucinogenic drugs to Espero, distributing them to the young on the planet.
Christie Racine and her friends visited a hidden club rumored to be a source of the dangerous drugs and have run afoul of the criminals running the illegal establishment. Kidnapped and transported out of Hellébore's system aboard a freighter, the girls become desperate to free themselves.
Alex Racine, Christie's brother and president of the Harakens, races to discover where the girls were taken. The trail leads Alex from Espero to the pleasure domes of Jolares, a moon orbiting a gas giant in Oistos, the New Terrans' home system. Alex's search is complicated by the discovery of not one, but three sets of pleasure domes, each on its own moon and run by its own criminal mastermind.
It becomes a dangerous game of hide-and-seek as the Harakens attempt to recover their girls and locate the biochemist who created the dangerous hallucinogen, without panicking the kidnappers. The Harakens' efforts are complicated by the duplicitous scheme of "Mr. Blue" and "Sniffer", two gang leaders, who seek to steal the domes of "Craze", the third gang leader, in a dangerous double-cross.
Alex and his people thought things couldn't get any more complicated until they discover the gangs have gone to war with deadly stunners and plasma rifles in a fight for possession of the Haraken girls, who are caught between the rivals.

maybe its me...

Would you try another book written by S. H. Jucha or narrated by Grover Gardner?

sorry but I struggled to keep interested so.. nope

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed the last few books in the series but I just couldn't get into this one.. it dragged on & on, the lack of concern at the kidnapping of a sister was laughable.. im writing this without having finished the book which in my opinion is just rude.. but I just cant be bothered to read it anymore.. don't care what happens to the characters.. find the Chicago gangster voices irritating and have totally lost interest at this point.. im going to put it on hold in case I ever get bored & desperate and give the next book a miss..

Continuing Lovely SiFi

If you could sum up Espero in three words, what would they be?

This is a great book in the continuing development of this Silver Ship series. I enjoyed this story, and true to nature, life does not always go well.
