Contamination Space Agent Jonathan Bartell 1

(1 customer review)


Jonathan Bartell is a young man, just out of university, when he signs up for the position of Quarantine Officer at the Orbital Launch Station.

He is part of a crop of students who flocked to study exo-biology when bacteria were discovered on Mars, and who are now all making their living flipping burgers, because the jobs are few and hard to get.

He is lucky to get a job in space, no matter how mundane.

Or so he thinks…

Gaby Larsen is a doctor at the tiny hospital at the space station, and she keeps secrets, not because she wants to keep them, but because she is too scared to share them.

Because out in space, your worst enemies are your fellow travellers.

Contamination Space Agent Jonathan Bartell book 1.

In this first novella, we meet Jonathan Bartell and Gaby Larsen.
Jonathan is a new employee at the Orbital Launch Station and Gaby is a doctor who has grown up in space and has worked at the station for a while.
She treats people who visit in the behemoth military ships that dock at the station before despatching their crew on earth leave. She knows what goes on in these isolated communities.
Jonathan is the son of one of these military scientists. His father travelled to the edge of space.
But by the time Jonathan’s father left the forces, he was a bitter man. He never spoke about what happened that made him leave.

The novellas in this series each tell a complete story. You can read them in any order. It is, of course, perfectly fine to start with book 1.
Jonathan is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and Gaby is jaded. She wants to protect him from his own innocence, but he may already have waded in too deep.
The crew of the deep space ship that Jonathan has to clear for return to Earth has a problem that may endanger all of humankind.

  1. Patty

    Jonathan Bartell joins the Quarantine Authority after graduating as an Exobiologist. He gets crosswise with authority on his first inspection. As a result he discovers that his father, who is retired Space authority, was pushed out of service, and was not well well regarded in the service. Jonathan meets Gabriella (Gaby), a doctor on the station, and calls her in on a case on the ship which he has suspicions regarding. They begin to discover systemic problems that that seem to run throughout the service.

    Characterization and plotting are excellent.
