A church friend recommended this book, but I can only assume it's because this is her relative. It was a poorly constructed "mystery" to say the least. The characters are not believable, the plot is overly simplified, and the general indictment of everyone except little children was an obvious metaphor for the author's furious contempt for his fellow man. The story never came together in any cohesive way, but the author's lack of mental and emotional stability was evident throughout. I found it to be depressing and uninspired, and can only recommend it to the author's own therapist.

I would not waste money on this book. This author must be a hate filled bigot. The story line is like reading a childrens novel. Then the hate starts. He must hate everyone who is not a christian.

The gently engaging homespun beginning leads into a story that is never predictable. The parade of characters and locations, shuttle launches and landings has the reader as the title suggests experiencing a regular “Double Take”. The sensitive treatment of a challenging yet topical subject of murder in the school yard has a mystery of twists and turns at every stage. Chapters are divided into the strangely familiar and tested sayings which cause the reader to ponder, reflect and then pursue the relevant theme within each episode of the book. As a reader who prefers non science fiction, I found the challenge rewarding. The real sense of journeying leads to a wonderfully satisfying experience, as the vision of hope for a better world whether in this or the extra-terrestrial human existence, just might be possible through the positive and constructive applications of justice. Mr Russell’s book is perhaps an inspiration for a television series or movie, that should readily adapt with appeal to both young and mature audiences. There‘s opportunity aplenty for sequels to this engaging story. I am intrigued to imagine where the journey to the” Lower Spiral” shall lead the action into the future?.

It started out okay but than I really got into it. It left me thinking someone committed a murder and then led you to think someone else did it

I read some of the other reviews, they didn't read the book. I had favorite characters and thought I had figured out the plot but then everything would change. The bad guys deserved more than they got!

Mr. Russell weaves a murder mystery tale in a unique and surprising setting, outer space. The suspense builds throughout the book and leaves the reader with the question “Can one have redemption?” He has a concise pros style and the book is a quick read because the reader is embedded more and more into the plot as it builds to its climax. It is well worth the read.

Second book by this guy I've tried, I really had high hopes. I guess I should have read the reviews. Very shallow writing style, everyone is made out to be evil except the kid. But in a "I'm going to throw you one the rail road track" kind of way. If your hoping for a spiritually uplifting tale, this isn't the place.
