Liam Hoffen and Nick James are back in the next, exciting installment of Jamie McFarlane's Privateer Tales.
After fighting space pirates and rescuing a damsel in distress, nothing sounds better than shore leave at Puskar Stellar on Mars where Liam can reconnect with his girlfriend. But neither their newest crew member, Marny, nor the Mars Protectorate Navy is ready for them to spend much time relaxing.
Their old nemesis, Harry Flark, found a new mining station to pillage and the crew of Sterra's Gift has been hired to transport a covert operative into Flark's lair. This is the perfect opportunity for them to set things right if it helps to bring him down. The big problem comes when Liam and Nick discover Flark is expecting them and has no intention of letting them get away with their lives.
Like white knights on silver steeds, Liam, Nick, Marny and a passel of new friends fight their way across the solar system, making a name for themselves and their mission.

Sci-fi, Fantasy, Mystery, Adventure, and YA Novels. If it weren't for physics, law enforcement, and my medication, I'd be unstoppable!
I reviewed the first book in this series and my opinion hasn't changed... This is a really great series and I can't wait to listen to the next audiobook.
I skipped the short story in between the first book and this one, but it didn't seem to be directly related to the main characters, so I went straight to this one.
Our two heroes continue their adventures, and this time have even more exciting battles and skirmishes than when we last left off... Stopping two pirate attacks and smuggling a spy into enemy territory undercover is only the beginning of this very well written story.
Again, narration is very good and I couldn't ask for much more.
This is a great series, though if you haven't read it yet start at #1 Rookie Privateer. The author does a fantastic job of developing interesting characters and fun space based adventures. This is such a great series that after reading 1-9, I am acquiring the audible versions to experience them again. Mikael Naramore is back narrating and doing a fine job of it. Read and/or listen to this, I promise you won't be disappointed.
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
I'm really liking this series. Good characters, fun plot, decent space opera. Our hero might be a bit too lucky to be believable, but it's good storytelling.
Again, Mr. McFarlane produced a very nice story.
And, again, Mr. Naramore did an excellent performance, except for one small, annoying bit.
The Heads Up Display is abbreviated to HUD, not H-U-D. HUD rhymes with mud. He calls a laser a laser, saying the acronym as it's spelled.
On the plus side, he did properly pronounce klaxon this time.
I have purchased all the Kindle editions.
Now working on the audibles as they come out.
Mikael Naramore has proven once again to be an excellent voice performer and reader which in turn makes him a great story teller.
The storyline continues to grow and get better.
start with book one although this one will stand alone it is even better when followed as a series.
Shoot him now before he comes back 3 more times. Liked the story, but he's too much a pussy to be a real Heinlein hero. Shoot for the heart, Ohhh just winged him....ahhhhh.
No, female characters not good.
You need to add the rest of the series all the next dozen or so.
? what is this a 3rd grade book report!
"When a deal seems to good to to be true."
Another great tale from the Privateer serries, where Nick and Liam continue there new business venture.
When a deal seems to good to be true, it usally is but that is when you need to look for potential profit areas.
The story was well told and is easy to follow.
