He's abducted by aliens to the planet Vost.

He's saving up for his fare home.

But he's got the small matter of a planetary apocalypse to deal with first...

In 1977 a New York Cab driver Mike Redolfo is abducted by aliens after being mistaken for a renegade scientist. Meanwhile, back in 1944 a mysterious man and his Jewish fiancée are fleeing across Nazi-occupied Europe.

Redolfo tries to keep a low profile on his new world whilst earning his fare home, but unwittingly gets involved with a shady gang of alien criminals, inadvertently bringing the planet to the brink of catastrophe.

As the link between the timelines becomes clear, Redolfo must discover secrets from the past that may hold the key to saving the planet.

If you like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse 5, and Frank Herbert's Dune, you'll love this gripping and entertaining sci-fi mystery thriller.

As a writer he is dedicated to giving his readers a great story laced with strong, fun and scary characters. Descended from Jewish refugees who escaped from the pogroms, he is haunted by the stories of the Holocaust but inspired by heroes who put themselves at risk to save others. He is the author of Space Taxis, the story of a 1970s New York cabbie who is abducted by aliens. Adam likes to hear from his readers. You can find him at or on his Facebook page
