Space pilot for hire! Hal Spacejock Guaranteed Cheap. A mysterious sealed crate, a pair of shady mercenaries with more guns than brain cells and an amnesiac robot which may or may not be on a secret mission …
Only interstellar ignoramus Hal Spacejock and the unflappable Clunk could turn a straightforward cargo delivery into a space opera with clowns. Three simmering planets, two cocky spacemen and one huge mess.
‘Fast, funny, quirky, enthralling comedy adventure …’
— Tom Holt.
