The Cassini Code by Dom Testa

Testa, Dom The Cassini Code, 276 p. TOR, 2010. $8.99.  Content: G.  The Galahad is facing more danger within and without.  The Kuiper Belt is a giant, dangerous, field of space rock waiting to bash the Galahad into pieces.  If that weren’t enough, Merit Simms, a charismatic rabble rouser is challenging not only Triana’s leadership, but the wisdom of the voyage itself.  He and his followers want the crew to vote on whether to turn back to Earth or not.  I am still enjoying Testa’s series as a piece of pure science fiction.  What little romances there are take a back seat to the problems and dangers of this last-ditch space effort.  MS, HS – ESSENTIAL.
