Publisher's Summary

Mankind was beginning its third leap into the Galaxy, but Old Earth had so long kept to herself that her people were unable to travel safely among the rough-and-tumble cultures that had evolved on distant worlds. That annoyed Earth's rulers, for Hobart Floyt - a minor Terran bureaucrat - had been left a mysterious inheritance by the deceased ruler of a small but wealthy interstellar empire. Earth was dirt-poor, and the government wanted Floyt's inheritance; but to collect it, Floyt would have to travel to the Reading of the Will...many light-years away! And so Alacrity Fitzhugh - a young, but seasoned spacer - is blackmailed into shepherding this naive Terran on a dangerous interstellar quest.

Love this book.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the other two to make their way to Audible! This story is the perfect buddy adventure. If you have every had a wingman you could trust and would do anything for, then you will see echoes of it in this story. I totally disagree with the fellow who thought it seemed dated. Actually the technology has held up amazingly, considering how old these books actually are.

The narrator has a great voice, but the voices he chose for Alacrity and Hobart don't really work for me. A little nasal and better suited to a Raymond Chandler character, but not so bad that I didn't enjoy the book.
