Glowgems for Profit is the first in the new science fiction series, The Profit Logbook, by award winning author, Bruce Davis. This is the action adventure sci-fi that harkens back to an earlier era, when science fiction was a rip-roaring, wild ride through the universe. There's not a bit of magic in this book to muck up the science, nor are there long boring explanations of how futuristic gadgets work -- it's a sci-fi fan's dream of the perfect science fiction novel! Rated PG-13.
"Zack Mbele, captain of the independent freighter Profit, needs cash fast. There’s a loan payment due on the ship, not to mention a bogus Customs duty imposed by a crooked official. They’ll seize his ship if he doesn't pay up and he has few prospects. So, when an old friend calls with a lead on a job, Zack isn’t too picky about obeying the letter of the law. All he has to do is smuggle someone out of Highpoint, a huge space station orbiting between the Earth and the Moon.
"But it's not all that easy, as a beautiful assassin and the Red Dragons gang complicate things.
"Suddenly Zack is involved in a maze of double-cross and murder as he races the Dragons and a shadowy paramilitary army for the greatest prize of all."
