Sam Sinclair thought this was just another run-of-the-mill job.
As a freelance law enforcement operative, his job is to find the target and deliver them into the hands of the Galactic Law Enforcement Agency.
When his agency contacts asked him to find Professor Kluvak Nembier, who they believed had murdered nine of his co-workers on a secluded archaeological dig on Agrillia 3, he fully expected to have the job done quickly.
Finding the Professor was the easy part. And, in Merita King‘s space opera “Floxham Island,” delivering his prisoner to Floxham Island Prison should spell the end of the job for Sam, and some much needed time off.
But once he and his companions find themselves stranded on the strangely deserted prison planet, and discover the horror that has recently taken place there, it soon becomes his worst nightmare.
Facing the horrors that lurk in the dark – while avoiding those that dwell in the light – Sam discovers that a new killer is amongst them.
As their numbers dwindle, Sam races to find the killer and secure the lives of those still surviving amidst the terror that is Floxham Island.

On her website, Merita King offers an interview with her main character, Sam Sinclair, star of The Sinclair V-Logs space opera series:
Your time on Floxham Island must’ve been terrifying with all those creatures. Does that sort of thing happen often?
It was one of the scariest jobs I’ve had in all my twenty years as a Law Enforcer and I still dream about it sometimes. You can’t begin to imagine what it’s like facing up to something like that, the fear is almost totally consuming. Luckily I did ten years in the military before law enforcement so I was trained to be self disciplined and to control fear. I’ve faced death quite a few times and had to fight for my life on a number of occasions but those creatures were almost too much for us to deal with. There were so many of them in so small an area and we were almost overwhelmed. I was so thankful to have a few good guys I could rely on; military trained men like myself and several extremely brave civilians who will always have my respect. I do come into contact with creatures and many of them are not at all friendly but nothing like Floxham has happened again and I hope it never does.
Do you keep in touch with any of them? You said in the video log that you intended to.
Yeah, I still keep in touch with Dex, Baz and Luggs. We try and get together once a year, around the time it all happened on Floxham Island, just to celebrate the fact that we got out alive. And to remember Ronjo, who died there.
