Publisher's Summary

In the far future, alien technology captured by the Union Earth Privateers has fueled Earth's tenuous expansion from a single planet to a handful of systems across the Orion Spur.
Victoria Marin, captain of the U.E. Condor, and her crew of Vultures have been running dry for months. In danger of losing her command and her credibility if she can't locate fresh salvage, she locks onto the distress signal of an alien ship in hopes of valuable cargo. What she finds instead is First Prince Tavram, the heir apparent to one of the largest empires in known space. Tavram's ship has been crippled after narrowly escaping an ambush and his would-be assassin is coming to finish the job.
The Vultures launch a high risk mission to rescue the prince and recover every last scrap of xenotech they can before the hunter catches up to his prey. But there are more dangers than notorious interstellar assassins when it comes to ferrying an alien prince across the stars, and Victoria must contend with dangerous alliances, old grudges, and even her own government if she means to bring her crew home alive. Whether she succeeds or fails, the consequences of her choices will affect the path of all humanity.

Bought on a whim, and darn well worth it.

NO SPOILERS.

Got this i n my Bookbub daily update as an e-book offer. Decided to go for the audible version and was more than pleased.

Never heard of the author as it's his first book I think, but a well written and a clever take on space opera.

Narration is clear, consise and a good voice range. The voice chosen for the Zeno who helps humans on the station (no spoilers ), was both hilarious and actually exactly matched the description as I perceived it.

All in all, worth reading or listening to and I look forward to (hopefully), more adventures with Vick's Vultures.

Well done.
