It was the easiest errand in the universe.
Until it wasn't...
Jax Caruso is used to everybody trying to kill him. But when his adopted aunt hires him and his bio-circuit enhanced partner under extreme duress to escort her to an Imperial summit, he figures the mandatory job at least comes with easy pay. And with his sidekick's cunning plan for a lucrative revenge-driven heist on the side, he's ready to double-up and rake in a ton more cash...
Inadvertently walking into a full-blown rebellion, the twenty-something jack-of-all-trades-for-hire does some fast-talking to avoid taking up arms. Not that he likes the empire, he's just not a joiner.
But with old enemies on his trail, a new threat looming, and the burglary turning into a life-and-death affair, the odds of getting off the planet in one piece are rapidly dwindling.
Can he and his cyber-programmed colleague blast their way out of danger?
Side Hustle Tango is the second book in the zany Grand Human Empire science fiction series. If you like a diverse cast of characters, fast-paced action, and hilarious hijinks, then you'll love John Wilker's high-spirited space opera.

This time round Jax screws up, drags in his aunt, who also happens to be the governor of Kelso station and manages to annoy, not only the Crimson Orchid crime syndicate, but also the imperials
Plenty of comical moments along the way with some darkness under the surface.
A couple of general comments: This story takes place at least a couple of hundred years in the future. Would people then really use something like our smartphones now? Is it likely that an interstellar government (if such a thing were actually possible) would take the form of an Empire with an Emperor? Everyone in the story is dark-skinned. I don’t have a problem with this, but is this really likely? (Perhaps this is set up in the first volume of the series.) There were several point-of-view glitches and a couple of missing words, but these didn’t detract seriously from the story.
It’s a well-plotted tale with lively characters (including the non-biological ones), effective good guys, bad guys, and in-between guys. I was a bit put off by a couple of male homosexual scenes, not because of their non-binary nature, but because they were gratuitous—they did nothing to move the story forward. Not a serious fault, however.
4-stars for a very fine tale.
