Where To Buy:

Nick Walker, ex Star Marine and fresh out of the United Federation Marshal Academy arrives on Ceres, part of the asteroid belt, with a laser pistol, a .44 Magnum, and a head filled with zero tolerance. He’s immediately plunged into a mystery of murder, sabotage, and fraud on a gigantic scale.

Nick is on his first assignment, confident he can tame the galaxy, bust the bad guys, and bring relief to the downtrodden. Reality check is just around the corner.

The Asteroid Belt is no place to raise a family—the Belt is the final refuge for fugitives, deadbeats, and creeps in general. Ceres, in particular, is a true den of iniquity, and law enforcement is a full time job.

To Nick, the law is the law, everything is black and white, and never the twain shall meet…

…or shall they? Nick is quickly confronted with the hard reality that sometimes good and evil can coexist, and not everyone is so easily classified. It’s a hard life on the final frontier, and even an idealistic young lawman might learn a few lessons.

The trick is staying alive long enough to learn them.

A science fiction adventure crime drama filled with action and suspense.

Asteroid Outpost

A brand new Federal Marshal lands at his assigned outpost and within hours makes the front page gossip world when he outwits (and physically damages) the neighborhood tavern bully. Over the next three days he'll kill a couple more people, rescue two kidnapped girls and have sex with two high profile women ….without sleeping…much…and then he goes on to take over control of the most prominent business on the asteroid while arresting its most noted criminals.

What is the quote from Star Trek…"where no man has gone before"? That definitely holds true for Asteroid Outpost. Yet one is constantly reminded of those old west stories about gambling and robbing and helping women in distress (tough women, but women in need of help, none-the-less) and the good guys with their six shooters and stately steeds who always arrest the bad guys─ after they've beaten them up a bit and made the bad guy feel guilty (even if only a smidge guilty). All that is missing from the Old West in Asteroid Outpost is the white hat. But we know who he is even if he wears a black hat and carries a RU-Hawk .44 strapped to his hip.

The action in Asteroid Outpost begins on page one and continues until the final page with zingers and twists and even some comedy in the midst of a mystery imbedded with unspeakable evil. The suspense is thrilling; the characters are totally believable; and I found myself rooting for the good Marshal in every incident.

John Bowers describes his characters well and he knows how to keep the reader so connected to the story that it is as if you are a bystander witnessing every incident first hand.

This is the first of John Bowers's books that I have read. It certainly will not be the last. He definitely has me half in love with Nick Walker and wanting to read a lot more of his adventures.

Dodge City of the Future

The stage is set in the “Dodge city” of the future with Nick Walker as the United Federation Marshall. It doesn't take him long to make his presence known on this outpost of the unwanted.

I was captured from the first page as the fast paced action kept me turning the pages. Corporate corruption, bullies and vermin…he takes them all on.

There are twist and turns that keep you guessing on what will happen next, and who to trust… Another great read!
