Product Description

Product Description

A remote corner of a bleak system...
A broken-down gunboat, stuck in space...
An incompetent captain and a misfit crew...
A pirate ship, a silent target, and a whole bunch of secrets...
So how's YOUR day going?

There have to be easier ways to make a living -- easier than dying slowly in an obsolete boat, as its power drains out and life support fails. Forget the job; forget the pirate problem: there's only time for a desperate jury-rig and maybe a little hand-wringing! And anyway...what are the odds of running into trouble way out there?

Set in a distant future among the stars, this series introduces us to Ejoq Dosantos, professional gunner for corporate and privately-owned armed merchant ships. Pirates, venal business interests, and interstellar intrigue abound, but sometimes it seems like Ejoq (who might have a slight authority issue) is his own worst enemy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good read - I want more! 15 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm just starting to return to sci fi after a long break, and thought this was worth a try as the synopsis sounded interesting and it's a good price. I was *very* pleasantly surprised at what a good read this is! The plot is really quite gripping and has a bit of a twist at the end (which I won't spoil for you). I also liked how the hero was a normal person, yet still interesting so that you want to keep reading more about them. I'll definitely buy more books in this series as and when they come out. Recommended!

You need to read this book. If you like SciFi, you'll love this book. It's a fantastic, original piece of space-opera that should not be missed.

A nice quick entertaining read from a new author. Action, drama, and a surprise twist at the end - what's not to like! I hope he continues the series.
