Overview

In the late 21st century, when voyages within the solar system still take years, a hibernation ferry on its way from Titan to Luna is sabotaged and sent on a new course so that Eurussian space pirates can capture its cargo and passengers. Its pilot Jared Lane is forced to reanimate one passenger, Jana Martin, a college gymnast, to assist him. A hastily improvised rescue mission is launched from the Jupiter system, but it won't be able to reach the ferry before the pirates. Neither Jared nor the rescuers are aware that what the hibernation ferry carries on board could change the economic balance of power on Earth.

On Luna, Alex Pushkin, an ambitious corporate executive, hopes to use the crisis to depose the company president Sylvia Hall and start a lunar revolution, and he plans to use sex as a weapon. But he doesn't know that his girlfriend Karen, a hard-drinking telepath, is working against him, or that the revamped KGB has its own plans for Alex, Karen, and the lunar revolution.

For everyone involved, reaching their destinations will require some major course corrections.

With a band of Eurussian space pirates determined to capture its cargo and passengers, pilot Jared Lane is forced to scramble to prevent his hibernation ferry from being overtaken; little does he or the pirates know, though, the ferry is shepherding cargo so precious, it could change the balance of economic power on Earth...meanwhile, cutthroat corporate executive Alex Pushkin schemes to use the hijack crisis in his favor as he aims to depose the president of his company and start a revolution...however, both his girlfriend and the revamped KGB have quite different plans in store for him - as well as for the fate of his as-yet-unlaunched revolution... The Deviators is an engaging Sci-Fi suspense thriller. In it, author D.R. White skillfully intertwines varying elements of action, adventure, and corporate and political espionage to forge an entertaining tale of drama and intrigue. With twisted, engaging plots and subplots, and a cast of characters that could easily translate to the big screen, The Deviators is sure to hold readers in rapt anticipation as the winding, multi-layered story unfolds. In impressive fashion, White's quite fertile imagination shines through, resulting in a well-crafted narrative that takes the reader on a compelling sojourn through the deepest recesses of the cosmos - as well as the human soul. A recommended read. Chelsea Perry Apex Reviews
