Bug Out by Charlie Dalton

In the not too distant future, humankind has found our way off planet and into interstellar exploration for resources the Earth can no longer supply. That’s when we discover we are not the only intelligent life in the universe, and the other species is also exploring and exploiting their findings for the same resources.

Bug Out is cleverly told in alternating chapters of current action and an overheard conversation between two unknown speakers that builds the back story for that action. The author has created a tight and exciting narrative that builds tension throughout. The truth behind the scenes are slowly revealed with ingenious twists. I was thoroughly entertained. I will be “book talking” this novella to all my family and friends, and looking for more in the genre from Charlie Dalton.
