Read Final Reckoning The Fate of Bester Babylon 5 Saga of Psi Corps #3

Oes from dreaded hunter to fleeing prey and must confront the hell he created choosing between surrender or survival This novel includes the death of a major character from the television serie. When Babylon 5 hit the airwaves back in the 90 s its intricate tapestry of ongoing story threads was revolutionary for its time and it drew me right in Story lines dealt with lofty political and philosophical concepts and big things happened regularly that permanently altered the character dynamics of the show But even though the show ran for a full five seasons one particular story line was never really resolved by the time it went off the air Set years after the end of the television series this book tells the story of the last days of telepathic war criminal Alfred Bester named after the late science fiction author and played on the show by Walter Koenig of Star Trek Now very old and still wanted for his crimes he finds himself in Paris and pursued by pharmaceutical tycoon and former Babylon 5 Security Chief Michael Garibaldi played surprisingly well in the show by current Libertarian radio talk show host Jerry Doyle A long time ago Bester did something to Garibaldi s mind and though he s had the psychic blocks removed he can t let go of his grudge or his desire to see Bester brought to justice After waiting so long to see how this story arc ended I must say that I found the resolution offered in this book somewhat anticlimactic But part of that s on me since the book has been out since 1999 There are certainly lesser B5 books that I read soon after their publication that I could have skipped in favor of this oneBut there is nice stuff here We get to see Bester befriend and ultimately fall in love with an innkeeper half his age and feel his anguish when he realizes that merely being with him puts her in danger We re given a look at how Garibaldi s obsession with catching Bester puts a strain on his family life as his wife urges him to just let it go It further humanizes characters that were already fleshed out than most from 1990 s television and it is welcomedBut unfortunately for this book s story to work the wily long surviving fugitive Bester has to make some inexplicably poor decisions His coming back to Earth is uestionable in itself but when he takes a job as a literary critic and begins to gain popularity one begins to wonder what the powerful telepath might be thinkingUltimately Garibaldi is able to flush Bester out by cutting off supply of a proprietary drug his company produces that is essential to all telepaths As he doggedly chases Bester through Paris in an obvious homage to Victor Hugo s Les Mis rables there are scenes that I wish I could have seen played out by the original actors Maybe it s not too late for that since both actors are now about the same age their characters in this bookUltimately though it doesn t seem like much is really accomplished Bester is captured and Garibaldi goes back to his family If left alone Bester would have likely spent his remaining few years uietly in Paris attacking only the books he chose to target in his literary columnBut there s something to be said for that isn t there Justice isn t always exciting or even satisfying Sometimes it simply must be done so that everyone concerned can move on
