Peter Grant is a man who has my utmost respect, and is a wonderful author. He penned one of my favorite books, Brings The Lightning, which won the CLFA Book Of The Year Award last year (of which my book, For Steam and Country is the winner this year). So he’s a man I like to keep company with.
He made a name for himself originally with his very successful Maxwell Saga in science fiction, which I consider to be a Nathan Lowell-style earn-your-keep adventure. I don’t know if there’s a name for it, but it’s working hard and doing the right thing and becoming a man… in space. A fabulous book series.
He’s finally back into space opera / military science fiction with this latest effort, after dabbling in Westerns and Fantasy, and it’s bound to be very exciting as Peter keeps getting better at writing with each release. And congrats to Peter for already cracking the top 3,000 of all of Amazon!
The secret is out – the Mycenae system is the hottest new mineral find in the spiral arm. Now it’s about to become ground zero in a gold rush by every crooked company and asteroid thief in the galaxy.
Andrew Cochrane, with his crew of the finest veterans and cunning rogues, have an even better scheme. They’ve conned the owner into hiring them as a mercenary security company to defend the system. With no oversight but their own, Cochrane’s Company plans to seize the richest pickings for themselves.
But nothing ever comes easy. If they want to keep their loot, they’re going to have to outwit and outfight every smuggler, bandit and renegade after the same prize – and their boss, too!
