I just received an email from Richard Phillips, the author of The Rho Agenda trilogy, letting me know that the last book in this series will be released tomorrow. He also informed me that he is actively working on his next series of books.
This author is amazing, I feel like I'm actually there with the characters when reading his works.
If you enjoy science fiction you will find this trilogy quite hard to put down. The Kindle versions if these books are only a few dollars and are well worth the money.
Search google for Second Ship or Rho Agenda.
