Sci-fi, political intrigue and all-out action adventure combine in Max Nowaz’s novel The Arbitrator. Set more than 500 years in the future, when humankind has colonised multiple solar systems, Jim Brown is an ex-con who has been given one last shot at redemption and rejuvenation by being put in charge of a rebellious planet with the job of bringing it back under control. Mankind has a technological advantage but Earth is many many light years away and unfortunately for Jim Brown, the species occupying other planets in close by solar systems have plans of their own.

Max Nowaz is also the author of Get Rich or Get Lucky and Timbi's Dream.


The Arbitrator by Max Nowaz

Max Nowaz's science fiction novel, The Arbitrator, follows the story of 153 year-old Jim Brown, a former highly successful administrator who is now rotting in jail, for tax fraud. However, in reality, he is there for taking revenge and killing several people on the planet Levita, after meeting the beautiful Narissa...In prison, he has acquired a drug habit, which is killing him slowly and his only chance of survival is a very expensive renewal process, which will make him young again and cure his drug habit. After ten years in jail, he is suddenly given a reprieve and offered a chance to redeem himself. He is sent as the 'Arbitrator' to 'Pirrus' in another solar system, to try and stop a rebellion and bring matters under control. Will he complete the mission successfully to earn enough funds for his regeneration? Only time will tell. Just when he thinks he has accomplished his task, he meets Gina, the daughter of a rebel, and finds out that there is a plot by foreign powers to invade the planet...The plot thickens when Brown also discovers that there is a mole in his organisation who is undermining his efforts to succeed. How will Brown react to the devastating news?
