Swallow the Sky by Chris Mead

In the far future, an antique dealer stays one step ahead of the bad guys as he hunts the galaxy for treasure, in this good old-fashioned space opera.

Following a terrible catastrophe, a small number of people fled Earth to found a colony on another world. Thousands of years later, humanity has spread to hundreds of planets. Carson travels between worlds delivering mail and trading in antiques. When some shady characters try to blackmail him into helping them find priceless artifacts of the originals colonists, he plays along but makes plans to get the treasure for himself.

The writing is very readable with few editing errors. Likeable characters, a tremendous plot which grips from the start, and some neat bits of science fiction content make for a satisfying and entertaining adventure story.

Expect some sexual references.
