Not my new book, but it’s still one you should read. Written by my friend (and superior writer) Peter Grant, this is the first of a series, but you won’t have long to wait for the rest of the books. He’s written all three in the trilogy, and will be releasing one a month starting with The Stones of Silence.
Here’s the blurb:
The secret is out – the Mycenae system is the hottest new mineral find in the spiral arm. Now it’s about to become ground zero in a gold rush by every crooked company and asteroid thief in the galaxy.
Andrew Cochrane, with his crew of the finest veterans and cunning rogues, have an even better scheme. They’ve conned the owner into hiring them as a mercenary security company to defend the system. With no oversight but their own, Cochrane’s Company plans to seize the richest pickings for themselves.
But nothing ever comes easy. If they want to keep their loot, they’re going to have to outwit and outfight every smuggler, bandit and renegade after the same prize – and their boss, too!
A side note: I did not create this lovely cover, but yes, that is a familiar ship. That’s because it’s stock art, and I have evidently liked it well enough to have bought and used it just like whoever did this cover. Which is fun, albeit a trifle confusing. When I have time, this is the very reason I plan to dig into teaching myself how to render spaceships for my cover work!
