Simon Remnant's t your average hero. Oh . As far as heroes go, he's way below average. Absent father, absent-minded lover, unskilled and untrustworthy. None of them do his uselessness justice. So there are expectations other than failure when he joins the mid- 21st Century's equivalent of The Gold Rush - a race to get-rich-quick through plundering the dazzling fortunes offered by an asteroid brimming with diamond deposits. Remnant provides the brawn in a dubiously talented and totally incompatible crew of three aboard a ship that's t expected to make it higher than the treetops. Can he overcome his underdog status? And can he beat the mighty NASA to the asteroid belt and return home with a life-changing cut of the loot? Lymon's debut vel is an outlandish adventure that mashes the thriller and sci-fi genres into a pulp of highly entertaining, uniquely-told fiction that'll leave you believing that even waaaaaaay below average heroes deserve to have their story told.
