For the crew of the Keiko, their stay at the Grand House casino on New Samara was supposed to be a well-deserved rest.

It didn't last.

Captain Ichabod Drift promised that the side-trip to the mining planet Uragan would be a quick in and out - a data retrieval job then back to the tables.

He was wrong.

When the revolution comes, all you can do is choose a side and hope to get out alive.

Review quote

Great fun . . . Golden Age chic! -- Stephen Baxter 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 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 Intrigue, piracy and action, Dark Run is a page turning SF romp with with an edge as sharp as mono-molecular blade. -- Gavin Smith, author of VETERAN and WAR IN HEAVEN A fast and wry SF adventure full of the deviousness and wit of Firefly. -- Stephen Deas
