Hal Spacejock Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Hal Spacejock

(Background) Hal Spacejock buys a run-down space freighter using a loan from a shady character. As the book opens, the shady character is demanding his money and Hal is broke. Hal is forced into a dodgy cargo job to save his life & his ship. Not only that, but the employer insists Hal take along a robot co-pilot to ensure the safety of the cargo. Hal and the co-pilot do not get along, but grudgingly begin to accept each other. I can't say more without giving the plot away, but there are car chases, robberies, kidnappings, thefts and more collateral damage than a ten-car pile-up.
