Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.300 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s almost non-stop action and excitement. The notion of drugs you can smuggle in your DNA is an interesting one.

Con: Tyner is a completely unsympathetic protagonist. The ending makes the whole story seem pointless.
