Shadow Gambit by Frank Kennedy [8/10]

Crackerjack sci-fi author Frank Kennedy is on a roll with his rapid-fire Farewell Amity Station trilogy. The second book, Shadow Gambit, continues the story of Trevor Stallion, a senior security officer on a huge space world, Amity Station. After solving the existential threat of a deadly terrorist group in the first book, now he finds himself targeted by a shadowy nemesis who threatens him, his world, and his family. In the meantime, the tale is broadened by following his brother, Connor, now an elite space trooper, who encounters his own existential dilemma and potentially places him on a collision course with Trevor. The author’s world-building and plotting are, as always, fully in control, and the writing is assured and entertaining. Shadow Gambit is an absorbing, fascinating evening’s read.
