Chuck never thought too deeply about whether aliens existed - not until Jopp, an intergalactic transport pilot, drunkenly crashed on Earth and tried to steal his truck. Now, Chuck finds himself unwittingly roped into helping Jobb work off a debt to the universe's most powerful corporation. Through a series of mishaps and misfortune, the duo finds themselves in possession of a mysterious black case. Along the way they are joined by Bhanakhana, an adventurous scientist, and Rohi, a rogue law enforcement agent. All they want is to get back to their normal lives, but in order to do so, they'll have to fend off murderous marauders, skirt the attentions of an interplanetary police force, deal with a peculiar crime boss, and escape a backwater planet inhabited by friendly yet endlessly frustrating alien yokels. It's a big and scary universe out there, and they'll be damned if they're going to face it sober.

I received this book for free for a review:

I got this book from the publisher for a review.

Okay, this one was definitely not for me. I like SF, I like fantasy, but this didn’t work for me.

An alien who crash landed his spaceship on Earth think he takes a ride with some kind of transportation device to where ever. Unfortunately it was not a transportation device but a big truck. Somehow he, the alien and the truck ends up in a large spacecraft, and then a lot of nothing happens around a case. We never learn why that case was so important or what was in it. I haver read reviews comparing this with The hitchhikers Guide and Futurama, but then they most have read another version of this book.

The characters were okay-ish, but the world building could have been much better.
