Publisher's Summary

Slanted Jack: a novel that bobs and weaves, takes you on a headlong race through a strange but believable future, and never slows down. The job looks simple enough: Jon Moore, the nanotech-enhanced, world-weary, soldier of fortune, agrees to help a con man, a friend from a part of his past he’d rather forget, protect a very special young boy. The deal doesn’t stay simple, as each move Jon and Lobo make results in more danger and more enemies. The situation grows even more complicated when a beautiful woman with an unclear agenda joins them in their quest.

The best con man Jon’s ever known, a ruthless gang boss, a heavily armed group of religious fanatics, and an interstellar government out to clean up a dangerous frontier world rush together toward an explosive climax - and Jon and Lobo are caught in the middle.

The most underappreciated series!!!!

Would you please explain to me, why nobody wants to listen for this series?!!!

The story is very interesting and getting more interesting by the book, in truth second book is better by 30%.
The NARRATION IS EXCELLENT!!!!!

the only thing I hate about this series is the cover pictures, they completely misrepresent my view of characters , in my imagination they don't look even close to the pictures.

PS
Adventurous sci fi which is definitely worth listening.
