The Gingezel Series

Twelve years in the making, the Gingezel series is cozy science fiction written by scientists. This series will appeal to the reader who is looking for real characters to get involved with and a complex plot line that evolves throughout the series. There is a tendency to end each novel as a cliff hanger. So, the series will not appeal to the reader looking for a taut violent thriller where the plot is contained within each book.
