The captain and crew decide to pirate other pirates. By the end of the story they realize that that won’t cut it and are thinking about becoming mercenaries. Resnick’s universe is full of historical character references and this one was with Dickens. I loved it.
A nice formulaic mashed potatoes and gravy of a story. And the inclusion of Dickens’ references made me happy. Nothing spectacular stands out, but I had fun reading this and enjoyed the unfolding story.
