Hal Spacejock Just Desserts by Simon Haynes (Book three in the series)

Hal Spacejock has a hold crammed with the most valuable cargo of all: fresh food. Half a million credits worth, to be exact.
Unfortunately, a vital part fails just before take-off, putting the entire cargo at risk. Hal must locate a spare quickly, and he sets off on a quest for the replacement part.
Meanwhile, his ship sits alone and unprotected at the spaceport, a target for every thief on the planet.
Deliver the cargo safely, and Hal will pocket a nice little earner. Fail, and he'll lose everything.
But will his ship - and her precious cargo - even be there when he returns?

• Winner, WASFF award, 2007
