Review quote

Mike Brook's Dark Run is a rambunctious, rapidfire rollercoaster of a read. Get signed up and strapped in for a helluva ride! -- Michael Cobley * author of the Humanity's Fire series. * Great fun . . . Golden Age chic! -- Stephen Baxter Brooks's terrific debut demonstrates that a good caper tale can take place anywhere, even in interstellar space ... Fans of rip-roaring space adventures will greatly enjoy this one. * Publisher's Weekly * Dark Run is a thrill-ride of non-stop action, wise-crackery and adventure in the vast vaults of outer space. I look forward to revisiting Ichabod Drift and the crew of the Keiko time and again... -- Luke Scull ...if you're looking for a Firefly-like tale, filled with characters like Damian Frey and the crew of the Ketty Jay, you won't be disappointed with this one. A quick read, but an immensely entertaining one. * http://www.sffworld.com/ *
