Tales of the Ketty Jay #02 - The Black Lung Captain
Darian Frey is down on his luck. He can barely keep his squabbling crew fed and his rickety aircraft in the sky. Even the simplest robberies seem to go wrong. It's getting so a man can't make a dishonest living any more.Enter Captain Grist. He's heard about a crashed aircraft laden with the treasures of a lost civilisation, and he needs Frey's help to get it. There's only one problem. The craft is lying in the trackless heart of a remote island, populated by giant beasts and subhuman monsters.Dangerous, yes. Suicidal, perhaps. Still, Frey's never let common sense get in the way of a fortune before. But there's something other than treasure on board that aircraft. Something that a lot of important people would kill for. And it's going to take all of Frey's considerable skill at lying, cheating and stealing if he wants to get his hands on it . . .Strap yourself in for another tale of adventure and debauchery, pilots and pirates, golems and daemons, double-crosses and double-double-crosses. The crew of the Ketty Jay are back!
Things are finally looking good for Captain Frey and his crew. The
Ketty Jay has been fixed up good as new. They've got their first taste
of fortune and fame. And, just for once, nobody is trying to kill them.
Even Trinica Dracken, Frey's ex-fiancee and long-time nemesis, has
given up her quest for revenge. In fact, she's offered them a job -
one that will take them deep into the desert heart of Samarla, the land
of their ancient enemies. To a place where the secrets of the past lie
in wait for the unwary. Secrets that might very well cost Frey everything. Join
the crew of the Ketty Jay on their greatest adventure yet: a story of
mayhem and mischief, roof-top chases and death-defying races, murderous
daemons, psychopathic golems and a particularly cranky cat. The
first time was to clear his name. The second time was for money. This
time, Frey's in a race against the clock for the ultimate prize: to save
his own life.
