Summary

Venus was a horror-world, a place of teeming, nightmare danger, yet with the danger went wealth, and in the Hotlands rested a secret. To find the secret was one thing: to get out alive was another matter.
E.C. Tubb wrote the long-running Dumarest space opera series, as well as many other fine science fiction novels during his long career.

    Four years ago, somebody pinched perhaps the most valuable book in existence.
     
    Merlin’s personal grimoire.
     
    And the price they’re offering for its return is the kind we can’t refuse, so it’s Ves and Jay on the case.
     
    Except that there aren’t any clues. Seriously, not even a little one. Nothing’s going to solve this case but a Vesper-patented Crazy Plan, and it had better be a good one, for complications are sprouting like daisies.
     
    At least it’s a straightforward mission. There’s no earthly way this one’s going to turn my entire life upside down... right?

    “Jam-packed with weird aliens, mysterious artifacts, and lovable characters... a tremendous good time and an impressive debut.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred) 
    A hilarious, offbeat debut space opera that skewers everything from pop culture to video games and features an irresistible foul-mouthed captain and her motley crew, strange life forms, exciting twists, and a galaxy full of fun and adventure. 
     
    Captain Eva Innocente and the crew of La Sirena Negra cruise the galaxy delivering small cargo for even smaller profits. When her sister Mari is kidnapped by The Fridge, a shadowy syndicate that holds people hostage in cryostasis, Eva must undergo a series of unpleasant, dangerous missions to pay the ransom. 
    But Eva may lose her mind before she can raise the money. The ship’s hold is full of psychic cats, an amorous fish-faced emperor wants her dead after she rejects his advances, and her sweet engineer is giving her a pesky case of feelings. The worse things get, the more she lies, raising suspicions and testing her loyalty to her found family. 
    To free her sister, Eva will risk everything: her crew, her ship, and the life she’s built on the ashes of her past misdeeds. But when the dominoes start to fall and she finds the real threat is greater than she imagined, she must decide whether to play it cool or burn it all down.
