Jack Reilly’s luck ran out just before the war did. Resigning his commission in the Alliance shortly after the end of the war with the Serkins, he went out into the galaxy looking for a job. Signing onto the Glacier Runner 17, an old and rundown cargo ship, Reilly finds himself working for a clueless captain, mixed-up in an intergalactic conspiracy, on the run from assassins, and involved with two women in relationships that he could only call “complicated”.

What people are saying about Lt. Reilly 2321 –
Don’t mess with the Engineer.
Really fun story. I loved how the humble retired-ish Reilly stayed one step ahead of everyone throughout the entire story. Well, maybe not his relationships, but the enemy at least. Lots of mystery, action, and pulling victory from the jaws of defeat. If I’m going to space, I’d like him in the engine room!
Please say there is a book two!
This was easily one of my most enjoyable books this year!! I loved the main character, Jack Reilly!! He was smart, military, older, and wiser. And he kept saving the day!!!!! The two main females were equal parts soft and hard. Together they rounded out all the rough edges for Jack and made for some very interesting interplay. The narrator was something special. This book was non-stop action with a variety of characters. Everything was performed to perfection.
A Hard-Boiled Sci-fi
This was a great story with the main character you could get behind. I am looking forward to the next book in the series to see what happens next.
