Publisher's Summary

"Let's just say I have pressing business anywhere but Earth."

Chuck Ramsey is a traveling comedian trying to turn a planetside gig on Earth into a cash cow. Of course, the cost of living on Earth is astronomical. He needs to get rich quick - or at least come out ahead - and head for cheaper pastures.

Enter Mordecai The Brown. Once the golden boy of the Convocation, Guardian of the Plundered Tomes and the Convocation's number one hunter of dark wizards, "Mort" has found himself on the wrong end of an internal investigation. You see, he was supposed to be killing mad wizard, then confiscating and locking up dangerous books - not reading them. Certainly not stealing them and destroying them.

When Mort needs quick passage off world, and off the books, he remembers a backstage meet-and-greet with funny-man who lived a nomadic existence with his family. Chuck agrees to take a passenger aboard his family starship, the Radio City, and suddenly a powerful wizard owes a favor he can never repay.

Little did either of them know the trouble that would follow.

Know When to Run is the first mission of Black Ocean: Mirth and Mayhem. It follows a mismatched duo of itinerant comedian and outlaw wizard as they roam the galaxy trying to eke out a living and stay ahead of the consequences of their actions. Black Ocean: Mirth and Mayhem takes a look back at an earlier era in the Black Ocean universe, and returning readers/listeners will get to see how some of their favorite characters came to be. Fans of morally gray heroes and slick talking conmen will love this series.

perfect for new to the ocean or returning

i have always waited and bought the "Black Ocean" books in large package deals. This is the first single story I have purchased and I'm glad I did. This one is good for people new to the black ocean series. This book doesn't require the reader to know any of the other series.

Not worth a credit tbh..

I´ve listened to all the "Black Ocean" audio books by J.S. Morin and love both the story and the narration. So I was very disappointed after listening to this, to find out a lot of the story is "copy/paste" directly from the Galaxy Outlaw series. And since the book´s only 4hour 55minutes, its simply not worth a credit.. Maybe if they combine the 3 Mirth & Mayhem books and sell it for a credit, it would feel more reasonable.. Still, having listened to the first 2 books, I don't think I´d buy it, unless it ends up being just as long (and great) as Mr. Morins other books.

Fucking love it!

Every time this author creates an amazing experience, listening to Mort and young Carl literally fills my hunger for great content.

Fantastic start to a new series!

Mikael Naramore is just fantastic!
The stories are all great but having focus on Mordecai and Chuck is going to fill in a lot of the back story
