Book 3 continues the antics of Joe, Skippy and The Merry Band of Pirates like the previous two books. R. C. Bray also continues with his excellent character portrayals and storytelling.

After saving earth again in Book 2, The Fly Dutchman is back in earth orbit. Joe is called on the carpet for his judgment calls during the last mission. Much discussion and argument ensues until a new mission is developed. One of mission parameters is find out the status of the earth troops stranded Paradise. Since Joe and company are traveling in an advanced alien technology space carrier, the mission must be accomplished without revealing their existence in the process. The consequence would endanger all of humanity. This causes all sorts of complications but nothing that Joe and his smart-assed beer can AI Skippy can't handle.

Meanwhile, back on Paradise, the situation is not good for the humans stranded there. The Ruhar can't continue to protect the planet and are negotiating to turn the planet over to the Kristang. This means certain death for the humans.

This is an entertaining story with a little more depth and action than Book 2. Even though the elements are different, I found character interactions getting repetitious.

The science fiction aspects of the story make for a great read. I will be continuing with the series.
