Description

Imagine The Bourne Identity meets Gravity and you'll get TRACER, the most exciting thriller set in space you'll ever read.

A huge space station orbits the Earth, holding the last of humanity. It's broken, rusted, falling apart. We've wrecked our planet, and now we have to live with the consequences: a new home that's dirty, overcrowded and inescapable.

What's more, there's a madman hiding on the station. He's about to unleash chaos. And when he does, there'll be nowhere left to run.

In space, every second counts. Who said nobody could hear you scream?

'Fast, exhilarating and unforgettable, and once you start it you can't stop' Sarah Lotz, author of The Three

'A stunning debut that never lets up, from the nerve-jangling beginning to the explosive end' James Douglas, author of The Doomsday Machine

'TRACER sets a new standard for all-action SF' Ken MacLeod

Review quote

TRACER is the literary equivalent of a base jump: fast, exhilarating and unforgettable, and once you start it you can't stop. I loved it. * Sarah Lotz, author of THE THREE * Exhilarating and guaranteed to keep you hooked until the very last page * GLAMOUR * TRACER sets a new standard for all-action SF * Ken MacLeod * Relentlessly fast pace...Vivid action scenes * SFX * Compelling, compulsive...Thoroughly entertaining - this one's worth picking up if you're in the mood for some sci-fi action. * SCIFI AND FANTASY REVIEWS * If you're after a fast-paced, action-packed, cinematic space adventure, then Tracer is absolutely for you . . . A promising debut, I think Rob Boffard is an author to watch * CIVILIAN READER * Riley Hale battles to save the last remnants of humanity in the claustrophobic, brilliantly evoked world of a crumbling space station where danger lies around every corner. A stunning debut by Rob Boffard that never lets up, from the nerve-jangling beginning to the explosive end * James Douglas, author of THE DOOMSDAY TESTAMENT * From its very first page, Tracer leaps into life and the pace doesn't drop until the end . . . This is not an easy novel to put down, the space station dramatically imagined, and I look forward to seeing where we are taken next. * FOR WINTER NIGHTS * I absolutely loved this book. Boffard's style of writing is ingenious. He has created a world within this book that is both mesmerising and terrifying at the same time . . . This is one that will go down in history as a classic novel. * THE WRITER'S RAMBLES * Ludicrously fast-paced, with a brilliant sci-fi setting, TRACER is an absolute blast of a read * David Owen, author of PANTHER * A hugely enjoyable and exciting space dystopia . . . I loved this. I'll definitely be looking out for the next book in the series . . this isn't just for fans of science fiction and space stories . . . If you like exciting and twisty thrillers (with a side order of action), you may find this right up your street. * Nudge Book *
