Dark Run by Mike Brooks

Series: Keiko book 1

Publication Date: May 24 or June 7 (Amazon shows Dark Run with a publication date of May 24. Goodreads shows the publication as June 7. So it’s one or the other, I guess.)

Synopsis (from Amazon): In this debut space epic, a crew of thieves and con artists take on a job that could pay off a lot of debts in a corrupt galaxy where life is cheap and criminals are the best people in it.

The Keiko is a ship of smugglers, soldiers of fortune, and adventurers travelling Earth’s colony planets searching for the next job. And they never talk about their past—until now.

Dark Run–British cover

Captain Ichabod Drift is being blackmailed. He has to deliver a special cargo to Earth, and no one can know they’re there. It’s what they call a dark run…And it may be their last.

Why I want this book

  • Sounds like a great adventure story.
  • This is a debut. I always like to try new authors.
  • I like science fiction about space ships, colony worlds, smugglers, soldiers of fortune, Earth.
  • I like the blue cover a lot–better than the British cover, I think.
