I've just finished the first draft of the next Fourth Fleet Irregulars book. If you would like to read the first chapter, here it is!
Mission Zero is now available at
The Fourth Fleet Irregulars are described in Friendship: Launch Day as "The guys you send for when you need a miracle."
This series goes right back to the start of it all.
First Lord of the Admiralty Dix Harangay has a problem. Able Star Jace Higgs has been sent to prison for punching an officer. Skipper Alex von Strada is determined to get his crewman back no matter what it takes.
Admiral Jennar is the one who put him in prison. He is out for revenge and will take Alex von Strada down any way he can.
Caught between the two of them, Dix Harangay comes up with the idea of putting Alex's ship Minnow onto irregular terms of service.
It should have been simple. But as the biggest PR disaster in Fleet history explodes in their faces, not even sending Minnow on deep space patrol is going to resolve the crisis.
In fact, it's about to make things a whole lot worse...
