Aboard a notorious gangster's luxurious starliner, Simon Kovalic and his crew race to steal a mysterious artifact that could shift the balance of the war.

Still reeling from a former teammate's betrayal, Commonwealth operative Simon Kovalic's band of misfit spies has no time to catch their breath before being sent on another impossible mission- to pull off the daring heist of a quasi-mythical alien artifact from under the nose of the galaxy's most ruthless gangster, not to mention their cold war rivals, the Illyrican Empire. But Kovalic's newest recruit, Specialist Addy Sayers, is a volatile ex-con with a mean hair-trigger -- can he hold the team together, or will they turn on each other before the job even gets underway?

Reviews for The Aleph Extraction (#2 Intergalactic Cold War)

A wisecracking caper that nevertheless doesn't skimp on the details and human cost of interstellar war, like John Le Carre meets The Stainless Steel Rat. Moren is one to watch. Immersive, intergalactic spy-fi. Moren gives us a Cold War thriller with wormholes and anti-grav fields. Hypercool. It's like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain. A frenzied story full of bold spycraft and exciting ground and air chases... Fans of suspenseful space opera will look eagerly for the next book. A great spy story, with tidbits of science explaining the intergalactic travel and even a hint of romance to come. An intriguing world of sci-fi spycraft and crime capering. Dan Moren is one of the most exciting voices to enter the literary world in a long time. Moren latest entry in the Galactic Cold War series, The Aleph Extraction, ratchets up the action, tension, and wit ... the interstellar heist caper you didn't know you needed, but not to be missed. Moren ably plays with trope and archetype to bring new life and new dimensions to the tried-and-true Heist Plot Faster than light writing, kinetic wit, and retro-futurist Golden Age style. A brilliant heist with a dynamic cast. Everything I was looking for in a spy novel! Fresh and engaging. No one blends fun and thrill quite like Dan Moren.
