Voyager is an American based techno-thriller.
It opens with the terrible events of 9/11 and introduces us to Bradley Barnes.
Chapter one begins in September 2016 as Barnes and his team from the FBI are about to storm a building containing suspects with terrorism links. Unfortunately the main suspects escape—with super-human speed.
In California, Dr Callie Woolf, project manager of the Voyager Interstellar Mission, is alerted to a security breach; a probe, far out in space, begins sending back unexpected images. The data is highly sensitive and Callie’s team are put on immediate paid leave. These vacations become permanent for some, in a series of mysterious deaths. Callie is also targeted, but quick reactions keep her alive; however, her attempts to go on the run are short-lived when she is arrested for espionage.
When Barnes is told to pick up a British pilot suspected of smuggling at Newark airport, he joins Agent Breecker for the job. He doesn’t know it, but he’s about to come face to face with a genetically enhanced super-soldier. Created by the Triumvirate, a group of manipulators who cause chaos to undermine governments and manoeuvre money and power around the globe; the super-soldiers remove those in their way.
This book is fast paced and a race against time, as the tension is built between the main players, and the story unfolds to reveal quite believable possibilities. Sadly they may well echo many such power-hungry groups around the globe today. Recommended for readers who enjoy American law enforcement stories and techno-thrillers.

Voyager One. A tiny probe hurtling through the void of outer space more than twelve billion miles from Earth, it is the remotest human object in existence. Callie Woolf, Voyager Project Manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is stunned when the probe unexpectedly downloads a series of increasingly disturbing images.
Within 24 hours, she is running for her life.
Brad Barnes, a conflicted FBI agent assigned to the case, soon uncovers a deadly plot that could change the balance of power on Earth and bring the United States to its knees. He must fight for survival in a race against time to defeat the conspirators, and confront a potentially explosive reality: that mankind may not be alone in the universe.
Voyager is an action-packed conspiracy thriller by Carl Rackman.
About the author
Hi! I’m Carl Rackman, a British former airline pilot turned author. I come from a naval military background and have held a lifelong interest in military history and seafaring.
I spent my working life travelling the world and this has given me a keen interest in other people and cultures. I’ve drawn on my many experiences for my writing.
I write suspense thrillers with a flair for evocative descriptions of locales and characters. I enjoy complex, absorbing storylines combined with rich, believable characters, so that’s the sort of fiction I write. I try to create immersive worlds for the reader to explore, and characters who are more than just vehicles for the story.
I hope you’ll enjoy my books and leave reviews. I try to personally thank reviewers if they’ve particularly enjoyed my books.
