I note that the LibraryThing ratings on this book are pretty scattered. Obviously it’s not a book for everyone, but—
This is my personal favorite of Moon’s Serrano books. Yes, it’s a bizarre story, the NuTex characters are outlandish, and truly offensive things happen to people throughout the story. But it’s well-plotted, the characters are believable (albeit a little extreme), and the book mostly works as a stand-alone novel. And the rescue at the heart of the yarn is nicely executed.
That’s about all you can ask of a space opera. This one’s a fun read.
