Publishers Description: Matt the loser. Matt the slacker. Matt the nobody. Matt Kander is a small cog in the Commonwealth bureaucracy until the chance discovery of a customs error leaves him jobless and destitute. When an unexpected offer takes him off-world, he is thrust into an escalating conflict with the neighbouring empire. Running from bombs, plasma guns and missiles, he escapes in a luxury cruise ship only for his real troubles to begin. Hailed as a traitor, a terrorist and a hero, Matt must live long enough to decide who he is.

Review: Ah the space operatic. If you like those venues as do I, then you will take to this novel like pigs in space.

Besides rooting for a consummate loser, there are space battles galore, a burgeoning AI and Matt gets laid.  Fall downs?Sure.  A skimpy story line that resides in the patterned and basic and an engineer that echos a familiar Scotty.

If the author can keep this interesting in the next installment then I am a fan.
