Jason Burke is the reluctant first astronaut to set foot on another planet. Very engaging hero, with great other characters and super villains. I love the dialog, the clever plotting and the terrific pace. The following intriguing description on Amazon sold me on getting the book; the book sold me on reading the rest.
Five Stars for the Omega Force Series
Jason Burke was a man hiding from himself in a small cabin high in the American Rocky Mountains when his simple, quiet life was shattered one night by what he first assumed was an aviation mishap. But when he investigates the crash, what he finds will yank him out of his self-imposed exile and thrust him into a world he could have never imagined.
He suddenly finds himself trapped on a damaged alien spacecraft and plunged into a universe of interstellar crime lords and government conspiracies, along the way meeting strange new friends… and enemies. As he struggles to find his way back home he is inexorably drawn deeper into a world where one misstep could mean his death. Or worse. He desperately wants to get back to Earth, but it may be the end for him.
… or is it just the beginning?
