"Daniel and Job, Book II: The Nograv" is a true sequel to "Daniel and Job." It is a science-fiction romantic comedy which continues the adventures of Daniel Johnstone, his amazing dog Job, Daniel's new bride Jessie, Captain Kandar of Ionus and General Jerome Bascombe. The story slightly overlaps the end of the first book by beginning with Mr. Benjamin's attempt to assassinate Daniel at the Vatican so that Mr. Jacobs and his team could commandeer the spaceship Dorius, but it does so this time from the vantage point of the would-be assassins. After this fiasco, Benjamin is forced to flee across Europe and to develop a plan to finish his "project" with new recruits. The story then focuses on Daniel and his friends and their attempts to reclaim their lives in America. As each new adventure unfolds, Daniel's box of leather-bound booklets continues to add interesting asides as he recounts his interactions with legends from the past while many of the characters from "Daniel and Job" return to play key roles in this tale of an extraordinary couple's search for peace, love and happiness. This book is filled with pop-culture references which should amuse the observant reader. While some of these may escape the very young, baby-boomers in particular will very likely delight in the humorous word-play.
