Transport: Death Mission is a hard science fiction novel written by Phillip P. Peterson. Russell Harris was surprised when the death row guard ordered him to put his hands through the hatch in the door. His clemency appeal had been rejected, and he knew of no visitors who would be coming to see him before the date set for his execution. The former soldier was surprised to see Colonel Morrow, under whom he had served in the military, in the visitor's room -- only now he was a general, and he came with an offer of clemency. Harris could volunteer to become one of ten death row inmates who would be assisting the government in a secret, highly dangerous set of missions. Each of them would undertake ten of those missions. If they survived, they would be granted amnesty. If they refused a mission or tried to escape, they would be summarily executed. Harris figured he had nothing to lose by agreeing to the offer, but he had no idea just how dangerous those missions were. He soon found out.
Phillip P. Peterson's hard science fiction novel, Transport: Death Mission, is an impressive blend of high-tech science fiction and psychological thriller. I became instantly absorbed in the story and could feel the tension and fear of the participants in the program as they awaited their turns in the transporter. Peterson's tale reminded me of the classic hard science fiction novels I fell in love with as a teen, and I enjoyed every minute of this well-written and exciting novel. Harris, the inmates and the officials overseeing the missions are all finely rendered characters and watching as they interacted was an entertaining and exhilarating experience. I’m looking forward to Books 2 and 3 in Peterson’s Transport series. Transport: Death Mission is most highly recommended.
