Summary

Sometimes it's not easy being a mutant thug.
The space station Belvaille, once the center of civilization, is nearly deserted because of the new government's policies. Hank makes do by working odd jobs, but he isn't sure how long those, or the city, can last.
However, there are still some people trying to scratch out a (dis)honest living on Belvaille. Hank concocts a plan to save the city: steal from the countless transports and freighters that pass through the System.
In the meantime, Hank falls in with a tough crowd of freedom fighters who seem determined to overthrow the government. The team goes on exceedingly dangerous assignments, with Hank taking the brunt of the danger.
As if things weren't bad enough, the Navy set up residence in the System, a powerful alien dignitary is scheduled to arrive, and Hank's absurdly-competent butler states that his robotic species may declare war on Hank's home.
It's up to Hank to fix the problems, find out who is doing what and why, and to try and earn a little cash in the process.

Hard Luck Hank Continues to Deliver

Any additional comments?

It is surprising how even after 6 books, each book is completely different from the previous ones. There are a few old characters that stick around and new ones that show up. You know you are going to get Hank being a dumb lug and brute forcing his way through the current crisis. But you know what? That's fine.

Basically if you liked the last book, you'll really like this one. Steven Campbell has clearly learned his lesson with the flop that was the third book (and lesser extent fourth book) and continues to grow the series and give us more of what we love.

I still recommend this book to about anyone that likes humor and space fiction.
