Flinx and his amazing minidrag Pip are always finding themselves in the middle of danger and galactic intrigue. So Flinx is not too surprised when they happen upon a young woman unconscious upon a river bank, deep in the jungles of Alaspin. Nor is he particularly shocked to discover that she is a brilliant scientist, abducted from a remote outpost on inhospitable Longtunnel by a group of fanatic assassins. Flinx can see no harm in returning Clarity - for that is her name - to her base before continuing on his way, although he is getting tired of having to sort out other people's problems. He does have his own life to get on with.However he is quite unprepared for the disturbing effect the beautiful Clarity has on him. And as he worries about this quite novel problem, the assassins are still at work. Stopping research at Longtunnel is their number one aim and they aim to kill anyone who gets in the way.

A no brainier, really... just as soon as Flinx and his mini drag, Pip, visit Visaria - a dangerously depraved planet to make sure that humans are indeed worth saving. But prospects really go south when Flinx runs afoul of a ruthless crime king. What's more, a new mystery is waiting to be uncovered: a shocking clue about Flinx's shadowy past.

Sentenced to Prism

The Humanx Commonwealth: Book Five.He was smart. He was good. He was backed by the Commonwealth's best equipment. So what could possibly go wrong? 'In the midst of life...' thought Evan Orgel. A whole lot of life. Alien life-form upon alien life-form, crawling, floating, wriggling, darting and oozing. The entire unexplored surface of the planet Prism was unimaginably alive. '...we are in death.' His death. His Mobile Hostile World suit - the very latest, state-of-the-art, off-world protection gear - had just failed. Attacked in just about the only way its proud makers hadn't thought of. So there he lay, a hermit crab trapped in his own armour, while the myriad alien life-forms of prism crawled, floated, wriggled, darted and oozed about him, getting ready to open him up like a tin of upmarket cat food. Evan Orgell was full of misery.
