Back Cover Blurb

Captain Jacob Brinn is back. He and his incredible Argo are about to set out on another voyage.

But, the best laid plans of even the Captain can go astray. This time it's in the form of "AJAX." And, Ajax's genius has sold out to the highest bidder among America's enemies.

Captain Brinn must hold off the pursuit of those who believe that he's the one behind the vicious attacks, all the while trying to track down the real culprit.

The brutal game of cat-and-mouse, spy and counterspy, deception and misdirection culminates in an incredible battle of technologies for the promise of America's golden heart itself.

About this Book

Michael Sykes, an identity thief, has accidentally stolen the wrong identity; that of a man whom the whole world wants dead—Captain Jacob Brinn, master of the research vessel, Argo, and leader of his incredible team of Argonauts.

When Sykes is rescued from a terrorist group by Autumn Brooke, Captain Brinn's commander of security forces, he finds there's a price. Against his will, he's been drafted into the Argonauts. The Captain has plans for him...

Thus begins the second phase of Brinn's crusade to bring the wonders of the future to the world of today.

But the best laid plans of even the Captain can go astray. This time it's in the form of "AJAX." And Ajax's genius has sold out to the highest bidder among America's enemies.

The brutal game of cat-and-mouse, spy and counterspy, deception and misdirection culminates in an incredible battle of technologies for the promise of America's golden heart itself.

A Review

Feel free to use all or part of the following, and edit to suit. This content was prepared for your use. We ask no acknowledgement of any kind.

Stephen J. Schrader's science fiction book, Ajax, is the second book in the Argosy Trilogy. It's a whirlwind read as a stand-alone adventure, or as the sequel to Paradigm Lost.

The story begins in a ski resort high in the Rocky Mountains, where Michael Sykes is enjoying an ill-deserved ski vacation. He's an identity thief and a coward, who's about to be confronted by one Autumn Brooke.

She's the commander of Captain Jacob Brinn's security forces, and she has orders to keep Sykes alive. This is a pretty tall order, because he's stolen the identity of Captain Brinn himself, and all the terrorists and all the armies of the whole world are now mobilizing to kill him.

This is the opening move of Captain Brinn's new voyage, and the second phase of his plan to bring the wonders of the future to the world of today.

But, the best laid plans of even the Captain can go astray. A new player, AJAX, enters the game, and enters with a brutal vengeance.

Soon the incredible game of spy-versus-spy, deception and misinformation, and a whirling race through cyberspace begins.

In an incredible battle of wills, using technologies from beyond the limits of human comprehension, America herself lies prostrate. And, the only force on earth that has any chance of preventing AJAX from ripping out America's golden heart is Captain Jacob Brinn and his magnificent Argo.

Ajax was published by Foremost Press. It can be ordered through local bookstores and at ForemostPress.com, and at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com
