Andrew Cochrane and his mercenaries have warded off a deadly onslaught by asteroid thieves. Now they’re riding high, buying more ships and looking for more contracts.
However, the criminal Brotherhood isn’t about to accept defeat – not after Cochrane’s Company killed their Patriarch. They’re out to rebuild, rearm, and get revenge.
What started as a simple patrol job in a deserted binary star system explodes into a multi-planetary arms race, with survival on the line!
Praise for Cochrane’s Company:
“This is a great new series in the same universe as the author’s Maxwell Saga and Laredo series.”
“[The] first book in the Cochrane’s Company series is a combination of Western movie, military SF, and the condottieri of Renaissance Italy. This was easily read, and required only a little mental juggling to keep track of major characters and places. Set-up and explanatory sections were nicely written, and the action scenes were tightly woven. Recommended for anyone aged 12 and up with a liking for space, adventure, or history.
“One of the things I like about Mr Grant is that his villains always have logical motivations for what they are doing (or trying to do) and that when looked in certain ways the heroes may be only a little better than the villains. What I particularly liked about this book is that the hero (Cochrane) has enough awareness to realize that some of the things he does (or commands others to do) are indeed pretty dark shades of grey even though they are for the most part the ones being sinned against. Cochrane is clearly going to have to struggle to ensure that he does take the morally better course not just the most expedient.”
