Many readers think of Bill Craig as author of a mile-high stack of mystery books - the Marlowe mysteries, Decker mysteries, Chandler mysteries, Cooper mysteries, et al. Others known his adventure stories - Caribe books, Hardluck Hannigan, and all. And still others follow his Westerns - from Maverick to Jericho Walls. Not to leave a genre untouched, here is the first in Craig's new sci-fi series, a tale about a star freighter manned by one-eyed battle-experienced Capt. Kiel Dorn and his crew - among them first mate Dick Morgan, the reptilian engineer Vord, and weapon's master Kieran. These galactic traders take on spider-like aliens, as well as Hal Chromos and his Corporate Security Troops in this blaster-blazing space odyssey.
