This is the follow-up to Starhawk Number One and it is as enjoyable as that first book. This is the latest version of the long-running Wingman series. Hawk Hunter, USAF F-16 fighter pilot, is still 'lost' in the Year 7200 AD, and not quite sure how he got there. His F-16 can now travel at two light years a second. He is crossing the Galaxy in it,looking for the secret to his identity, while blasting various bad guys along the way -- and with the darker forces of the massive Fourth Empire still hot on his tail. His quest is to find the mythical world known only as 'Planet America' as he knows he is an American and that there are more Americans scattered around the Galaxy that might be like him. Just how Hawk reaches his goal is full of twists and turns and somehow Maloney works a sort of X-Files angle into the middle part of the book, as unlikely as that might seem in a SF tale of such far-flung Space Opera scope. There are still the 'old' elements of 1950s sci-fi from the first book (ray guns, destructo-rays, lots of robots) that evoke Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers and give the story a classic feel. The book is actually like three novellas in one. I won't ruin the ending for anybody, you'll have a good time reaching it yourself. Suffice to say it's exciting, touching and mysterious as well. Hunter is looking for America -- and aren't we all these days? Hope there are more Starhawk adventures to come.
