Summary

Our hero, Jake Stewart, the first Belter student at the Merchants Academy is ready for his first job. All past sins, like murder, theft, and shooting out an airlock are forgiven. He just has to see a man in a bar and pick up some information.

What could possibly go wrong? 

How about assault, jail, vomit, and charging irregular expenses? 

Now, he's disgraced, possibly fired in the militia and on an outer orbit trading voyage that is not going well. Oh, and his new boss hates him and might try to kill him. How is he going to get out of this mess?

Mediocre

As an Audible release I am disappointed. Way too much he said, then she said.
The reader-narrator should be able to tell or show the characters being portrayed with their different personalities, language, tonal inflections, etcetera.
Failure falls on the author, the editor, and the audible producer and or production site.
There were similar problems with book number one and they have seemed to worsen in book two.
I will not be returning either of the Audibles as INDIES need support and encouragement to continue on.
While this is a critique it is not written to discourage but rather to point out areas that could and should be addressed in future writings and Audible releases.

Respectfully

Good but not great

Not perfect, but then what is? Of the random science-fiction books that I've picked up to listen to while traveling, this was one of the better ones. Not art, but reasonably good entertainment. If you've read the first book in this series, you might be surprised by how different this one is from its predecessor. The first book was much like a novelization of the Infocom game Bureaucracy. This one is more like a story of what happened in a Traveller role-playing game session. Lots of similar terms, technology, etc. Different from the first book, but still worth the time.
