Unknown to most humans, aliens love our coffee. It’s the most popular drink in the galaxy and Earth is the only planet that has it. An eccentric band of extra-terrestrials are making a fortune smuggling coffee from our world and trading around the galaxy.
The series is a genre-bending mashup of hardboiled detective and science fiction, with some nasty alien bounty hunters thrown in. Jack Winters is a down to earth, tough as nails detective determined to bring the bad guys to justice – and he doesn’t care what planet they happen to be from. Bad guys are still bad guys as far as Jack is concerned, no matter how many heads they might have.
Aliens, Spaceships and the Occasional Latte is the first book in the series, in which hardboiled detective Jack Winters meets the aliens for the first time. Before long he’s travelling in space with the quirky, off-beat band of alien smugglers, fighting for his life against galactic bounty-hunters. A fun romp through space with an eccentric band of galactic coffee smugglers.
Coffee To Go, With a Spaceship is the second book in the series. The evil alien bounty hunters are back, and furious with Jack. Bent on revenge, they kidnap Johnnie and disappear into uncharted space. Desperate to rescue his son, Jack enlists the help of Montclair, a strange little elf from another world he’d only just met that morning. But he’s the only person Jack knows with a spaceship. Jack’s daring girlfriend Donna accompanies them and together the trio give chase across the galaxy. Along the way Donna discovers a hidden talent for stick-handling spaceships and navigating through space. They track the alien kidnappers to a desolate slave-world where they are forced into a desperate fight on a remote planet to save Johnnie.
