Summary

For Pyke and his crew it should have been just another heist. Travel to a backwater desert planet, break into a museum, steal a tracking device then use it to find a ship buried in the planet's vast and trackless sandy wastes.  

Except that the museum vault is a bioengineered chamber, and the tracking device is sought after by another gang of treasure hunters led by an old adversary of Pyke's, the devious Raven Kaligara. Also, the ship is a quarter of a million years old and about two kilometres long, and somewhere aboard it is the Essavyr Key, a relic to unlock all the treasures and technologies of a lost civilisation....

Superb! 5 star.

I loved this book. From beginning to end it entertained and kept me.wanting more.
Having met Brandon Pike in the previous book, we have the chance to properly get to know him and his crew more; two times more in fact! Read on to be be amused, entertained and encapsulated in a world beyond imagining.

An unusually done story

I had to listen to this book several times before the very complex plot became clear.
The narrators many voice characters were
Entertaining on the second listen.

Recommend a second listen through on this one due to complexity of the story.
Thanks
