Part-time heroes. Full-time outlaws.
Carl Ramsey has done the unthinkable: he turned down a lucrative job. When the deed is too despicable even for outlaws like the Mobius crew, someone nasty had to be behind it. Carl and his friends decide to hunt down their potential employer and turn him over to the authorities. But as amateur vigilantes, they mire themselves in a moral quagmire of conflicts of interest.
With victory (and a tidy payday) in their sights, can they live with the awful truth they uncover? Carl will have to decide if being one of the good guys means letting a friend pay for their crimes.

Captain Paul Ramsey leads a menagerie of wizards, a four-handed beer-drinking mechanic, a robot who was a wizard, and assorted others who have been following him for twelve books and several shorter pieces. In the spirit of “Firefly” they take on some jobs which don’t allows meet the criteria of perfectly legal. In their latest adventure, “Mission Inadvisable,” the 13th book on the the Black Ocean series by J.S. Morin, they do something different. They actually do the right thing (while making money, of course) but forget to take into account that pesky law of unintended consequences which has plagued them on previous adventures that weren't quite so legal. Or as someone once said, “no good deed goes unpunished.” In their careening progress across space we get a really good read that once you pick it up and start you won't put it down until you finish it. In other words, Morin has presented us with another really awesome tale of the “Dark Ocean.”.
