In the Rouge is a magnificent blend of sci-fi adventure and comic mayhem – one part Star Wars and one part Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - where one man is all that stands between humanity and certain doom.
In an off-kilter universe where humanity is ruled by a tyrannical accountant-turned-emperor, and the fates of billions are threatened by an over-zealous military and a coalition of mime-controlled pirates, Liam Gatley just wants to have a few drinks, a few laughs, and maybe an occasional romantic evening with a beautiful woman.
But after a night of drinking, Liam wakes up to an unfamiliar place and a life-changing agreement he can’t remember. And before he can even figure out what’s happened, he’s rushed aboard the ISS Titan to hunt down interstellar pirates as a proud new member of the Imperial Space Corps in the most dangerous position available: Ship’s Canary. And where he's very unlikely to get a date.
Now, Liam is out of his league. And, if he doesn’t play his cards right, he may be out of time as well. His life has suddenly become very expendable, and his success and very survival may just depend on him being out of something much more valuable: His mind.
