Shortly after his arrival on Beta Colony, Miles unexpectedly finds himself the owner of an obsolete freighter and in more debt than he ever thought possible. Propelled by his manic “forward momentum,” the ever-inventive Miles creates a new identity for himself as the commander of his own mercenary fleet to obtain a lucrative cargo; a shipment of weapons destined for a dangerous warzone.

This is the book that actually hooked me on the series. Book one was interesting enough to make me read book two. Book two introduces Miles and the difficulties he faces. In book three, this book, I fell in love with him.
