KANGAROO TOO by Curtis C. Chen

Kangaroo’s back!
And this time it’s personal...
Maybe?

On the way home from his latest mission, secret agent Kangaroo's spacecraft is wrecked by a rogue mining robot. The agency tracks the bot back to the Moon, where a retired asteroid miner—code named "Clementine"—might have information about who's behind the sabotage.

Clementine will only deal with Jessica Chu, Kangaroo's personal physician and a former military doctor once deployed in the asteroid belt. Kangaroo accompanies Jessica as a courier, smuggling Clementine's payment of solid gold in the pocket universe that only he can use.

What should be a simple infiltration is hindered by the nearly one million tourists celebrating the anniversary of the first Moon landing. And before Kangaroo and Jessica can make contact, Lunar authorities arrest Jessica for the murder of a local worker.

Jessica won't explain why she met the victim in secret and erased security footage that could exonerate her. To make things worse, a sudden terror attack puts the whole Moon under lockdown. Now Kangaroo alone has to get Clementine to talk, clear Jessica's name, and stop a crooked scheme which threatens to ruin approximately one million vacations.

But old secrets are buried on the Moon, and digging up the past will make Kangaroo's future very complicated...

Set in the same world as WAYPOINT KANGAROO, this high-octane science-fiction spy thriller, bursting with adrenaline and intrigue, puts a unique spin on the outer space adventure.

PRAISE FOR KANGAROO TOO

"A wry, fast-paced spy thriller with a million twists and a good heart. Kangaroo's dry humor kept me turning pages well past my bedtime."
— Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin


"[A]s smart and sassy as its title character... Chen steers his well-wrought mystery into a succession of revelations that give it relentless momentum."
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)


"This is a caper novel reminiscent of Donald E. Westlake at his best: things start small, then escalate, then turn sideways and escalate again, and then the unexpected ambushes everybody. It's all about character and pacing and character: Chen is a master of both. If you like good old-fashioned plot-driven SF, you will like this book; if you like slightly absurd humorous SF, you'll like it even more. I want to read more from Chen."
— Locus Magazine


"The flippant humor of Kangaroo lightens the mood of what could be a gritty, international spy (à la James Bond) novel. An intrigue- and espionage-filled mystery set in space, with a captivating lead and a fast-paced plot that will fit the needs of lovers of genre fiction."
— Booklist


"[A]n intelligent and fun space mystery with a maturing and cheeky central character."
— The Missourian


"Anyone who loves science fiction is sure to love this book."
— The Oregonian
