From the book description:
Bored with on-time deliveries? Want your valuable cargo strewn across the nearest planet? Call Hal Spacejock! Partial deliveries, non-arrivals and total write-offs a specialty. An incompetent, accident-prone pilot is given one last chance to save his ship. An ageing robot is trusted with a midnight landing in a deserted field. And a desperate businessman is prepared to sacrifice both of them to get what he wants … Combining relentless action with non-stop laughs, Hal Spacejock explodes onto the science fiction scene with the subtlety of a meteor strike and the hushed reverence of a used car salesman.
