From the author of the acclaimed Koko series, Kieran Shea, comes Off Rock, a wickedly funny and lightning-paced bank heist set in space...

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. Pass the popcorn.

Reviews for Off Rock

Five awesome and entertaining words to describe this one: 'Bank heist set in space.' Yes, please - io9 fast-paced, high-energy story, which has all of the elements one would expect in a futuristic heist caper....A great tale that is part space thriller and part classic gold heist. - Booklist Off Rock is a space heist story you'll dig. - Do Some Damage While Off Rock lives up to its billing as a page-turning, escapist heist tale set in outer space (who wouldn't pick up that book?), this novel becomes much more than a fun romp due to the depth of humanity Shea instills in his characters...Shea digs deeper than most authors of escapist literature are willing to comment on the very human need to break free from an unsatisfactory life. - Tethered by Letters the final third races along to an explosive conclusion. I burned through it in an afternoon, and the twists at end were brilliant. - Beauty in Ruins If you're after a plot-oriented, quick-moving caper, Off-Rock is as good as gold. B&N SFF blog fast-paced and funny - Black Gate 'Off Rock' is a fast read. Like one day at the beach fast, or one flight with no layovers. The story zips along with little in the way of complication. NPR balls-to-the-wall action and hilarity. Nerdspan some great sci-fi escapism Heradas one hell of a good, pulpy and deliciously quirky science fiction novel for adults, because it's pure escapism from start to finish. guaranteed entertainment Book Devil
