Red Bounty (Backyard Starship Book 2) Kindle Edition
Even in space, crime still exists.
After taking a Peacemaker job to find missing fuel, Perry finds something far more sinister than simple theft—a voice, crying out in a forge of heat and flame, and the discovery reveals a series of acts so vicious that nothing short of revenge will suffice.
Following leads across the stars, Van, Perry, and Torina discover the wealthy elite are doing more than just taking fuel.
They’re stealing lives.
But it takes money to make justice, and Van has to work. Torina’s land must be restored, and the Dragonet needs new armor, and Van’s sword isn’t going to sharpen itself.
So Van throws himself into the life of a Peacemaker, where he discovers that doing his job—and doing it well—makes him a target.
He’s got the will. He’s got the sword. And he’s got help. Now all he needs is a little fuel.
And maybe a gun or two.

The characters and plot progression have redeeming features, the proofreading is pretty professional, the lack of critical editing is a negative. As a "free Kindle" read, interesting enough, but not really ready for prime time. Still a better yarn than some.
There are a few gripes with the series/ universe this is built in. The nature of this universe is there are tons of alien races in known space, which only spans about 80-100 light years of space. I find it very difficult to believe that in thousands of years these races haven't spread out more considering they have faster than light travel. It ends up being that humans are much more common in space, despite Earth not even knowing about this situation.
Regardless, Van and Co are great, and he and Torina have built great chemistry with each other and the AI. I look forward to seeing their adventures in future books.
Well written with good plotting and character development.
Not the most exciting story, not much in the way of tense battles, shootouts or fighting.
Sure all that is in there to some degree but it’s not the most action packed story I’ve ever read.
It is pretty well done with good dialogue and just a good, well written story that held my attention. I suppose it’s better to say galactic knight errant than galactic cop.

The primary story is progressing slowly, but there are so many side plots and adventures that it's not a bad thing. Thankfully whilst the main plot is slow it is progressing, so by the end of the book we are that bit further on and ready to see where it goes in the next
