New Debut - DEBATABLE SPACE by Philip Palmer

DEBATABLE SPACE (USA, UK, Canada)
Philip Palmer (Website -- doubles as a blog)
Orbit
Trade Paperback
Excerpt, Later Excerpt (scroll down)

Blurb:
Flanagan (who, for want of a better word, is a pirate) has a plan. The plan, at first, seems simple. Kidnap the Cheo's daughter, demand a vast ransom for her safe return, sit back and wait.

"The Cheo is ruler of the universe known to mankind.Only, Lena isn't the Cheo's daughter and the plan is far from simple. Fortunately, Flanagan has had a lifetime to work it out. Unfortunately, he has far less time to execute it.

Debatable Space is a space opera of extraordinary imagination, and a brilliantly plotted novel of revenge.

Raven has agreed to review this novel, and Orbit has agreed to send it, so expect to see it in the upcoming weeks.

Hope she likes it, I certainly did. It's quite unusual, though. :)
