Townsend’s 189-page book follows lieutenant Titus Chumba of the Core Empire Intelligence Corps on his assignment to investigate a water smuggling ring on Mars. As the book progresses, so does the pace. The conspiracy grows bigger as Lt. Chumba unearths more evidence during his investigation. From secret assignments to cold war conspiracies against a lizard-like enemy, The Smugglers of Mars is an exciting read.
With danger around every corner and well-thought-out details for every scene, character, and situation in the book, I felt immersed in it. At times I checked how far along I was in my Kindle version of the book. Each time I surprisingly found myself well beyond where I expected to be. Thanks to Townsend, I lost some sleep simply because I didn’t want to put the book down.
Solid fast-paced sci fi adventure
This is a great book absolutely jammed with action that grabbed me right from the first line. The levels of spy games are fantastic!
This was such a fun book to read! It’s like a futuristic 50’s crime novel / treasure hunt complete with fedoras, private investigators and the ever present blonde bombshell.
This book will have you turning pages quickly in a feeble attempt to try and keep up with each new twist and turn. Just when you think you have it…BOOM…. another twist. I LOVED it.
The technology is awesome. This author describes everything so well I could clearly see the entire story play through my head as I read. I especially loved Mr. Townsend’s description’s of all the different species of sentient beings out there. What a fascinating imagination he has!
