More About The Prison in Antares by Mike Resnick
 
 
 
Overview
The Traanskei Coalition's greatest weapon is the Q bomb, and after years of failure, the Democracy has come up with a defense against it. The problem is that they killed most of the team that created it. The sole survivor, Edgar Nmumba, was kidnapped by the Coalition. Only Nmumba can duplicate the work fast enough to prevent the loss of another dozen populated planets.
Nathan Pretorius and his team of Dead Enders will require all their skills and cunning to rescue him, sane and in one piece, from the Coalition's best-hidden and best-guarded prison, somewhere in the Antares sector. But in a game of cross and double-cross, can they find him before it's too late?

Resnicks second Dead Enders book (after The Fortress in Orion), linked to his larger Birthright universe, is an entertaining adventure, though it relies all too often on clichés. Recovering from the events of his previous adventure, Nathan Pretorius is once again called upon by the Democracy to gather his team of unlikely heroes (master thief Snake, shape-projector Proto, strongman Felix, empath Circe, and tech guru Pandora), along with a new recruit (quickly nicknamed Irish), to rescue a scientist whose kidnapping could lead to a disastrous loss in an interstellar war. Resnick wisely makes the stakes higher than before, which grounds the story more firmly in the well-worn space opera setting. Still, most of whats here has been done before, often in Resnicks own books, and few of the evens feel like they have any real effect on, or new insight into, the larger setting. This is a solid comfort read, but those who skip it wont miss it. Agent: Eleanor Wood, Spectrum Literary. (Dec.)
