It’s kind of Happy Days meets Weird Science here, with possibly the most earnest protagonist ever finding that his best friend has brought some kind of weird Nazi rocket back from the war. He helps the friend get it back to the friend’s barn, and eventually all hell breaks loose.

I wasn’t sure about this one, and actually picked it up as part of my consumption of Lake’s back catalogue.

Rocket Science has the feel of an author who hasn’t really hit his straps yet, but does have sufficient promise. And once the story really starts to put a few twists in it well and truly had enough pace to keep me entertained. After all, who doesn’t enjoy reading about the Mafia, Nazis, and space rockets in Kansas, right?
