The Second Death of Daedalus Mole

“Clever, quirky, original, hilarious”

Joanne Harris

Daedalus Mole wants to make the best of a bad situation. The plan: fly his unwanted passenger, Erin, to her destination, squeeze her for every last penny, then immediately find refuge in the nearest pub.

Unfortunately, when the galaxy is on the verge of economic collapse and your passenger has a bounty the size of a planet on her head, there’s only so much another drink can do to help.

Sitting somewhere between Raymond Chandler, Douglas Adams, and the world building of the Star Wars universe, I loved this.

Not since hitchhiker's guide have I enjoyed a non-sci-fi sci-fi so much.
