Review of sci-fi novel "Corsair" by James Cambias

I found this book in the local library and decided to read it. Both title image and its summary were interesting.

The novel is set around year 2030. There is a base on a moon used to harvest helium-3. Helium-3 is used as a fuel in nuclear fusion reactions, and it is very expensive and necessary item.

The novel's focus is a commercial space piracy. The novel's protagonist is a computer hacker for hire named David. He is very successful in hijacking commercial helium-3 payloads during orbital re-entering.

However, David's tendency for trying of outsmart everyone around him will put him and people who cares about him in danger.

But as in Hollywood movies we have more or less happy ending. Basically, this novel is great for quick fun read and it could be even great as a script for B grade sci-fi movies that directly go to DVD.
