Anomalous Thrust

(2015)
(The fourth book in the Sliding Void series)
A novel by

 
 
Captain Lana Fiveworlds might be flying with the same motley crew of misfits, but her problems are all-new.

Lana believes that a demanding and difficult client on board her beloved starship - the Gravity Rose - is the sum of her woes. But that was until she has to emergency ditch inside a star system which holds a full range of deadly secrets.

There are the murderous intentions of the local government with its slave-owning aristocracy to contend with, not to mention the ruthless rebels trying to overthrow the regime. And then there's the moon-sized unknown alien vessel that jumps into the system
every few centuries, along with the chance to claim untold riches. Or the chance to die, well, really quite horribly.

With Calder, Zeno, Skrat, Polter and the chief still helping Lana, there's the smallest of chances the crew might survive. But as every spacer knows, it's not where you jump into hyperspace that counts. It's only ever where you end up!

- TIME OUT

'A ripping yarn ... the story pounds along... constant inventiveness keeps the reader hooked... the finale is a cracking succession of cliffhangers and surprise comebacks. Great fun.'
