Space Taxis by Adam Frosh and Harriet Frosh is a complex and yet wonderful science fiction/fantasy yarn set in the 1970s that takes readers through two timelines in the most cohesive manner. Mike Redolfo had a habit of helping people in need, and that was what cost him his job. He hoped to drown his sorrows in alcohol, but his plans were foiled when he was abducted by aliens. Taken to Catuvell City on a planet called Vost, Mike was mistaken for a renegade and was about to be dealt with before he convinced his kidnappers he was innocent. If he wanted to go back home, he had to earn it by driving his cab. In another narrative set in 1944, Marianna was living with Dominik and trying her best to hide from the Nazis. However, when the Jewish couple escaped, Mariana discovered that her Dominik was not what he seemed. What was he hiding from Mariana? Would Mike ever get back home?
The author did justice to both parallel stories and gave readers just enough to hook their attention until the end. I enjoyed Mike’s narrative and his ramblings. Mike was the kind of character that stood proud and center in the narrative and commanded the attention of readers. His predicament was unfortunate, but he didn’t lose faith. On the other hand, we had Mariana who was living under harsh conditions, but she didn’t let this hold her back. All the characters were masterfully developed, the author managed the two timeframes brilliantly while also maintaining the mystery. It was a story that had me looking for clues and feeling thrilled with every turn the story took. It was incredible!
