If you have a secret, then keep it secret that you have a secret to keep, goes the old saying. Frank Eric Russell now has one secret too many. Not only is he working for a man who believes that secrets are best kept by the dead, he is undertaking missions that stand high chance of being fatal in their own right while spying on his employer on behalf of the most feared man in the Galaxy – who also wants him dead. If the life of a spy is fraught with risk, the life of a double agent is doubly dangerous when the stakes are raised in the private war between the espionage services.
War is coming and the major Powers are readying themselves for the conflict. As the Galaxy descends into the confusion of war, will there be room for one man in an outdated scout ship to find a way of surviving and meeting his obligations to both his employers? If the chance comes his way, Frank will take the money and try to escape. Will he get that chance?
Follow Frank into the chaos where, to simply stay alive, he will need all his luck and to use his special skill to the utmost: running away.
Readers’ praise for the Scout Pilot Series:
I enjoyed the first one so much I just had to buy the next two straight after. The luckless Frank Russell is an engaging travel companion. I feel I have seen much of the underside of the Galaxy in his company.
LOVED IT!!! Very funny! A witty good clean fun read.
Will Macmillan Jones is a story teller and a fine one. As I read these books I found myself swept along by the story.
If you’re a fan of retro sci-fi and quirky humour, it’s definitely for you.
A twisting, turning sci fi plot and a galaxy full of larger than life characters
