This slim (86 pages (not references)) paperback is written by Douglas Hill. Its written in the 1st person past tense. The star of the story is a bounty hunter called Del Curb. Each reference is 2 or three pages long. I'm no great genius but this is well written stuff ,a kind of '30's detective story in space with a big splash of Blakes 7. It was a nice wee read, however, I found the successful route first time (only 5 decisions ) Worth a few more tries though to see some of the other planets/encounters.
