"Great fun" Booklist starred review on Koko Takes a Holiday. Jimmy Vik works for a galactic mining company, with his ex-flame as his boss. When he discovers a significant gold pocket during a routine shaft demolition procedure he feels his luck has changed--though smuggling the gold "off rock" won't be easy. With the help of a scrounger and gambler and his sidekick, Jimmy puts together a plan. A sardonic heist novel set in space, Off Rock is escapist adventure of the cruellest kind.
