Yep!

The story is set in the Coyote universe, taking place after the events of Spindrift. It has aliens, diplomacy, a mysterious crew member, double crosses, triple crosses and danger...along with a bit of silliness. For example, the value of marijuana to the aliens indicates the author is a baby boomer. Further, the aliens extorted the earth heroes because of a perceived affront, just called for someone with backbone to stand up and call bullshit. I only have one Coyote universe book to go, "Hex." I intend to read that one soon. Then, maybe I can finally put it to rest, at least until another one comes out.

Irreverent take on sci fi staples

Tongue in cheek but a lot of fun.
Story moves along and has a number of cool surprises. The characters are also very vivid. Liked this.
