“Once again, Kroese gives me a story I can’t put down with a hero I can’t bring myself to despise. A brilliant sequel to one of my favorite space romps of all time.”
– Hugh Howey, New York Times bestselling author of Wool
After interstellar con man Rex Nihilo hijacks a cargo freighter on a whim, he decides that he and his long-suffering robot sidekick Sasha have found their calling as space pirates. But when the ship’s cargo turns out to be a cryogenically frozen religious fanatic who holds the secret to a vast galactic conspiracy, Rex and Sasha find themselves on the run from real pirates–as well as agents of the oppressive Malarchy, crazy space cultists and the Ursa Minor mafia. If Rex is going to get out of this jam alive, he might just have to save the galaxy… again.
