    Another great Jon and Lobo adventure

    Our hero and his PCAV are back in action! Don't misunderstand the title: "Heaven" is the name of a planet, and it's only partly deserved. ( ... much less interesting than the name "Pinkelponker.") This book is very much in line with previous installments: deep character development is reserved for the principle figures, and the action is non-stop. For me, the level of descriptive detail is right on target: enough to spark your imagination, but not enough to clog the action. You get further backstory on Lobo and a little progress on Jon's inner struggles with his secret past. Not as many plot twists as the other books, but enough to keep you engaged. Buy it! Read it! You won't be disappointed.

    The third Jon-Lobo outer space odyssey is identical in tone to the previous novels

    Of all people, nanotechnology enhanced soldier Jon Moore should have known first hand by now that good intentions lead to hell especially if a beautiful damsel in distress is involved (see ONE JUMP AHEAD and Slanted Jack). Still, he started off with just trying to get the femme fatale away from her abusive spouse over the objection of his only friend in the universe, Lobo, his artificially intelligent Predator-Class Assault Vehicle.--------------

    One thing leads to another manipulation of Jon while Lobo shakes his engine in disgust as his good deed definitely gets him punished. The Central Coalition, whom Jon knows to avoid having a bad history of "cooperation" with them, has him searching for renegade scientist Jorge Wei, who allegedly is conducting banned nano research on children. Jon and Lobo head to Heaven where Wei is allegedly performing his illegal tests cocooned inside a very popular humongous tourist spot, Wonder Island, a place impossible to enter without permission;. Super soldier Jon and super assault vehicle Lobo no such boundaries, but what awaits them is the results of bioengineering.---------------

    The third Jon-Lobo outer space odyssey is identical in tone to the previous novels as the story line is faster than the speed of light, the action never stops, and some of the key characters are two dimensional from the same cookie cutter. Anyone who appreciates space opera at an incredible acceleration will enjoy the latest escapades of the universe's greatest soldier and his sidekick.-----
