I have a new book out.

It's publication day for Bone Silence:


"Return to the third book in the Revenger Trilogy, for another thrilling tale of piracy set among the stars . . .

Quoins are accepted currency throughout the thousands of worlds of the Congregation. Ancient, and of unknown origin and purpose, people have traded with them, fought for them, and stolen quoin hordes from booby-trapped caches at risk to life and limb throughout the Thirteen Occupations. Only now it’s becoming clear they have another purpose . . . as do the bankers who’ve been collecting them.

The Occupations themselves are another puzzle. The rise and fall of civilisation may have been unevenly spaced across history, but there is also a pattern. Could something be sparking the Occupations – or ending them? And if so, what could it be, lurking far beyond the outermost worlds of the Congregation?

The Ness sisters are being hunted for crimes they didn’t commit by a fleet whose crimes are worse than their own. If they’re to survive, and stay one step ahead of their pursuers – if they’re to answer the questions which have plagued them – it’s going to require every dirty, piratical trick in the book…"

  3. I look forward to reading this. I'm just commenting to point out that there seems to be a typo in the advertising line quoted at the top of the post. It seems there's a word missing between 'of' and 'set'.

  4. Thanks! I cut and pasted it without spotting that that word (I think it should be piracy) was missing.

  8. Mr. Reynolds: trying not to spoil anything for others, but I am concerned about the fate of the Miser, it's contents, and most importantly it's Security guard. Sunward bound toward freedom?
