Publisher's Summary

In the year 2010, an alien virus nearly wiped out the human race. A thousand years later, mankind has recovered and ventured into space. There has been no sign of the aliens since. Humanity remains confined to the Solar System.
All that is about to change.
Mazzy Webber is a lowly janitor on a third-rate cargo ship. Deeply in debt, when his captain decides to turn pirate, he leaps at the chance.
A modern Robin Hood - minus the part where he gives back to the poor - Webber lays down a few ground rules. No attacking manned ships, and no stealing from anyone who can't afford it. Within months, he and the crew are out of debt. Their next target will make them rich.
But the attack goes all wrong. The target's cargo could be the death of them - or it could be the key to reaching the stars.

I am a huge Edward W Robertson/Ray Chase fan and this series is one of their finest. If you love "Breakers," this one is for you!

A fantastic start on a new swimmers saga

While there is no need to experience the first swimmers series, Breakers, it will explain some of the references in this follow-on series, which occurs a millennia in the future. Edward W. Robertson continues to create a wonderful cast of characters along with creative and exciting plot arcs to keep one glued to the story. While there are several lead characters, Webber is the primary one, at least in book 1 and I swear, his mocking and sarcastic attitude along with his luck reminds me so much of Walt in Breakers, I wouldn't at all be surprised to eventually find out that he is decedent of his.

The thing is, that while the story plays out in dramatic and often satirical ways, there are moments where Robertson suddenly surprises us with some very poignant and sad occurrences.

Ray Chase is a very good narrator and is especially suited for this type of novel but he has a tendency to voice female roles with a gruffer voice than some of the male roles. Even so, he's still a joy to listen to him narrate the story.
