In a way, Off Rock is a caper novel, at least to begin with, because there's a lot of careful planning involved with moving that gold. Unfortunately for Jimmy Vik, he has to team up with a shady character named Jock, who's not only treacherous but marked for death by a shady organization that's sent a beautiful assassin to the asteroid to kill him. And then things get complicated.
One of the things I enjoyed about Off Rock, besides the story, was the very real world that Shea creates. It's a scruffy, lived-in world, and it's very well done. The book zips right along, the plotting is clever, there's humor, and Shea has a great time telling the tale. Check it out.
