Cosmonaut Keep is contemporary science fiction at its highest level, an epic of daring and passionate individuals seeking a place for themselves and their dreams in a vast and enigmatic universe.
"Plenty of eye-kicks and some wonderful set pieces, from the arrival of a gigantic starship to the herding of dinosaurs by flying saucers . . . . Cosmonaut Keep is a portal to a deeply imagined future history that parlays X-Files paranoia about Area 51 and alien Greys into a vast interstellar community watched over by microcosmic gods." -Paul McAuley, Interzone

While his roommates are performing at East Hampton, Long Island¿s John Drew Theater, Freddy Parc model Paul Monroe returns home to find a corpse on his bed. Paul tells the police he never saw the victim, Heather Ryan before he found her dead. The media has a field day with the homicide, dubbing it the ¿jockstrap murder¿ because of the apparent murder weapon. <P>Producer Michael Reo worries that his plans to star Paul in a film involving the last major Hampton murder is near collapse. The police suspect the underwear guru of the crime because of the locked room, in this case cottage, phenomena. Instead of seeking a new actor, Michael decides to prove that the infamous model is innocent. However, he never expected to uncover the mess he finds. <P> THE HAMPTON CONNECTION is an entertaining police procedural-amateur sleuth tale that provides an insider look at the playground of the rich and famous. The story line works because of the puzzling, but apropos clues associated with the case. Although the police at time seem to lack credibility, Vincent Lardo shows he knows his stuff both, mystery and locale wise. <P>Harriet Klausner
