Metro 7

Cover image of Metro 7

Metro 7 is a relentless sci-fi action-horror novel that takes hold from the first page and doesn’t let go until the last.

As the crew of the Icarus travels through unfriendly space with a war criminal in their cargo hold, they detect a distress signal coming from a human ship. The ship is the Metropolis Seven, a long-vacationer on a ten-year cruise around the galaxy with one hundred thousand passengers and crew on board. The ship is as silent as a crypt.

Captain Goldwing leads a mission aboard the Metropolis Seven while the remaining crew members of the Icarus play babysitter with a psychotic madman who will stop at nothing to reclaim his freedom.

Metro 7 is now available on Kindle.
