Mike Lee lives and works in Denver, Colorado, as a psychotherapist (which he sometimes thinks is great practice for writing novels, since he believes that a lot of what passes for psychology these days is fiction, too.) His previous work has been published in magazines (as far away as Bulgaria) and in local newspapers, and has all been professional (relating to psychotherapy and psychology) or political in nature. An avid reader of all kinds of novels, as well as political commentary, he started writing fiction a few years ago as a hobby, and is fond of saying "It probably wouldn't have happened if they still made good TV shows."

Interesting story, didn't care much for the back and forth between action and action/interview. Mostly, didn't like the ending. Hero thrown under the bus

Yet another great book from Mike Lee. StarFire is a takeaway from Mike's previous book, Fey, where we learned that Vince Lombard left the Galactic Marines under rather unusual circumstances—it seems Vince destroyed the biggest, baddest space ship ever built after they sent him to check out its status.
StarFire takes Vince's backstory from Fey and expands it. The switching back and forth between Vince's interrogation and the search mission is written and paced perfectly. The amazing details (like how if you need to talk to each other in the vacuum of space you need to touch helmets together - or what happens if the gravity on a boarding ship doesn't match the gravity of the ship being boarded) that Mike Lee thinks of add tremendously to the story.
And if you thought the romantic friction between Vince and Lauren Callaway (Blondie) was well written in Fey, wait until you see the tension build between Vince and Lieutenant Linda Tillman.
Mike Lee has written yet another solid fast-reading book that grabs your attention and keeps it engaged until the satisfying conclusion.
