A Rake by Starlight by C. B. Wright

 

Politics is dirty. Piracy is just a little smudged.

Grif Vindh, Captain of the Fool’s Errand, has a problem: he knows too much.

He knows the secret behind the late Baron Mogra Tylaris’ untimely demise. He knows about the shadowy organization behind it. And now he knows about the contingency plan the late baron put in place, in case he was ever prematurely removed from the game.

The only rational thing to do with that kind of knowledge is to pretend you don’t know it. Naturally, Grif tries to sell it instead. It is generally agreed by everyone involved that this is when things started going horribly wrong . . .

Waiting For More

By Jim Zoetewey, editor, author of The Legion of Nothing

Jul 2, 2016: I didn’t read the first book in this series (Pay Me, Bug!) until it was published as an ebook. I’m not sure why. This time around I’m reading every post as it appears and wishing Chris updated more quickly.

If you liked Pay Me, Bug!, everything that you liked is still there: the amoral smuggler captain, the crew (even the bug), the complex political situation created by the previous book, and still more that I can’t post without spoiling the surprise.

If you didn’t like the first book, you probably won’t like this either, but that’s okay. There’s a lot to be said for satisfying the fans who like space opera.
