Robert Appleton has tapped into his extraordinary imagination, and penned a very entertaining story in Alien Safari. I would urge anybody who enjoys a fun story, Sci-Fi, intergalactic wildlife, or a good old shoot ‘em up style space opera, to get a copy today. You will be glad you did.

Warning! Wildlife may be dangerous. Proceed beyond this point at your own risk.

When celebrated Omicron detective Ferrix Vaughn is called in to investigate a deadly breach on Hesperidia, a protected planet full of indigenous wildlife, he doesn't know what to expect. The world used to be a tourist attraction, but the safari tours were discontinued long ago due to rampant poaching. Only a handful of researchers live there now, including Jan Corbija, the young woman who reported the breach.

The deeper Vaughn digs, the more the evidence seems to point to a recent raid on a biotech facility in a nearby system. Whatever was stolen from there, it's attracted the attention of major political players in a time of war across the colonies. Vaughn suspects the secret is on Hesperidia, in the hands of the two fugitives who fled the murder scene.

If he wants to get to them first, he's going to need Jan's help. Her Alien Safari tour will have to reopen for this final excursion. But to survive it, they'll both need to face their demons, for a predator far deadlier than man roams the wilds of Hesperidia. And this is its killing season.

This way for the ride of your life.
I liked the book from the interesting first chapter. It moved along at a great pace and had an interesting ending... Good story! I hope that the three heroes get another storyline on the Safari Planet.
