Description

Commander Sam Jagering has never seen a crime like this - a whole firma settlement raised and
hundreds killed. As the leader of a team of Constables responsible for maintaining peace and order
amongst the sky-peoples, Sam's first duty is to hunt and punish the perpetrators. But his second duty is
to the lives of his men - the young pilots of Nova Squadron - and when the two start to conflict how can he
possibly decide which course is the right one?
Excerpt

The man on the radio rambled on about the latest celebrity gossip scandal that occurred. His high
pitched, squeaky voice described the whole ordeal as, "scandalous, [and] an absolute travesty." Another
radio station also covered the apparent love swap situation and tongue wagged about how this will affect
the actor's new movie that is coming out next week. The female co-host harped in stating that the real
victims were the children and how they will be... something, something.John did not give a shit.John
Duran, a man who throughout his lifetime always had a better relationship with his vehicles than with the
women who came and went - and sometimes came again, depending on the night - over the thirty-some
years of his life.The world, according to the gospel of John (Duran that is) is that even in the face of
celebrity gossip, ruined marriages, stock market crashes and - God forbid - the Cubs winning the World
Series, the world would continue to spin just as it had done so a million years before. ...Well, maybe
except for that last one.The man on the radio rambled on about the latest celebrity gossip scandal that

Reviews

John Duran isn't the stablest of men. He smokes, is a recovering drug addict, and goes through women
like they were water. As he's driving home from a family function, he's grumbling to himself about an
argument he'd had with his sister.He's craving a cigarette and listening to the radio when he notices
there's been no oncoming traffic for miles. It's weird, but what's a guy to do? Then he sees someone lying
in the road. He nearly has an accident trying to avoid him.The old man looks dead, but it turns out he's
just drunk. John empathizes with him and offers to give him a ride to the next town. Oddly, the old man
keeps claiming 'The end of the world is here.' John figures the man has lost it. But has he?Okay, I'm not
sure why, but I loved John Duran. I think it's because he was so real. Great characterization by Mr.
Kloster. The niggle of suspense woven through kept me wondering what was going to happen next. At the
end of the story I was so curious I didn't want it to stop. Come on Mr. Kloster, I need a part II.
