It's Hunt for the Red October in Space, with this brand new military science fiction novel from Patrick S. Tomlinson.
In a demilitarized zone on the border of human space, long-range spy satellites are mysteriously going quiet, and no one know why. Captain Susan Kamala and her crew are dispatched to figure out what's going on and solve the problem.
That problem, however, is a mysterious, bleeding-edge alien ship that no human vessel could hope to match in open conflict. But, it's not spoiling for a fight.
Now, the Captain and her Crew must figure out how to navigate a complicated game of diplomacy, balancing the needs of their corporate overlords and the honest desire for a lasting peace between the two races, without letting a long-standing cold war turn hot.
Patrick S. Tomlinson lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a menagerie of houseplants in varying levels of health, a Mustang, and a Triumph motorcycle bought specifically to embarrass and infuriate Harley riders. When not writing sci-fi and fantasy novels and short stories, Patrick is busy developing his other passion for writing and performing stand-up comedy in the Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago scenes.
