Publisher's Summary

Jason Burke was a man hiding from himself in a small cabin high in the American Rocky Mountains when his simple, quiet life was shattered one night by what he first assumed was an aviation mishap. But when he investigates the crash, what he finds will yank him out of his self-imposed exile and thrust him into a world he could have never imagined. He suddenly finds himself trapped on a damaged alien spacecraft and plunged into a universe of interstellar crime lords and government conspiracies, along the way meeting strange new friends… and enemies. As he struggles to find his way back home he is inexorably drawn deeper into a world where one misstep could mean his death. Or worse. He desperately wants to get back to Earth, but it may be the end for him...or is it just the beginning?

Heinlein Not, Nor Even BV Larson

I made it half way through this book, because it kept leading me on. I wanted to find out what happened when he got in the ship. I wanted to find out what happened when he picked up the stolen cargo. If a writer has good skills he can make you eagerly wait, but if a writer is lacking in skills, it is just irritating. This was irritating.

Heinlein or Larson
At one point this author compares himself to Heinlein, referring to his earlier works. This does not have the intellect or prose of a early Heinlein. At first you may be reminded of one of BV Larson's popular series. The difference being, that Larson's book is full of lots of action. A writer should have a purpose for ever sentence other than to pass the time. This is way to slow moving.

I did like the snarky synth. If the rest of the book could have been as well written as the Synth, this would have been a good book.

Narrator does a good job.

Good Old-Fashioned Sci-Fi -- For a Change

I am old enough to remember when Sci-Fi was mostly upbeat, the characters were likable, and the plot made sense. This book recaptures that tradition. And the narration was good, much better than in other Sci-Fi series I have recently listened to. The book is not deep but if you want some enjoyable escapist Sci-Fi, this is a good choice. I hope Audible makes the rest of the series available soon.
