Product Description

From Booklist

The sequel to Spindoc takes Venture Silk to Earth 2, home world of his lover, Zia Relanj. He is pursued by Terran intelligence; she is pursued both by her own world's covert operators, who suspect her loyalty, and by a Terran agent who wishes to extract from her body the secret of the life-prolonging drug with which she is being treated. All this means that between bouts of sex, martial-arts training sessions, and target practice, Silk and his lady have a good deal of excitement guarding their backs and just barely succeeding at it. What Perry is doing more and more often is writing a hard-boiled thriller or men's action novel with an sf setting. Since the books are good and he makes no pretense of doing anything grander, readers who like this kind of thing can just settle down for a few hours of good entertainment. Roland Green

One last chance is... one last chance. Oct. 5 1998
By "roger@nightly.com" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Venture Silk is now on New Earth being supported by his lover, spy/ intelligence agent, Zia Relanj who has just been awarded a secret "Immortality" medical treatment for her services in New Earth Security. While Venture is trying to restore his apparent loss of self esteem, created by being a man without work, Zia discovers that there is a unknown side effect to the Forever Drug... She can now read minds. Slowly she begins to realize the dangers inherent if any government discovers that a person that can live hundreds of years, can also read minds. But she also has plenty of excuses for the delay. Starting with, Venture's moving out of her home, the instinct that someone is following her and the awareness that whoever it is, is very, very good. And probably very, very dangerous.
For over a year I've been passing up "SPINDOC" by Perry. The back cover write up just didn't interest me. This book is Part 2 of "SPINDOC". Although "THE FOREVER DRUG' is a neat stand-alone story, enough hints of what happened previously mean that now I have to get a copy of "SPINDOC", and it's no longer on the shelf at my local bookstore. I should have known better than to pass up a book by Perry.

Like all SPerrys books and this was an excellent sequel. Recommend it to any sciFi or martial artist to read
Perry never disappoints Feb. 20 2014
By marikajean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A master of the technical action thriller, Perry often reads like a long and descriptive action movie. Pace is quick, surprises have a tendency to be telegraphed but still surprise and I love his vision of the near future.
