Overview

A man on the run holds all the cards...

One-time National Security Advisor Joss Kyle barely escaped Washington D.C. with his skin intact. When he jumps planet for Space Station Sidon, he walks into an ambush more dangerous than any he's yet faced, in a game with the highest stakes in town: control of the entire solar system.

Chased by agents of a corrupt senator, a revolutionary leader, and an underworld boss known only as The Green Lady, he quickly discovers that in the looking-glass world above the gravity well, survival is just another hand of cards:

It isn't whether you win or lose. It's how you rig the game.

Editorial Reviews

Nathan Lowell
"A sweeping tale of politics, corruption, intrigue, betrayal, and murder...a fast-paced ride through a world that's too plausible to be ignored." --Nathan Lowell, author of Quarter Share and other Trader's Tales from the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper
Brand Gamblin
A lush, powerful story of hunter and prey, betrayal, rebellion, and poker. Sawyer delivers!
--Brand Gamblin, author of Tumbler and The Hidden Institute
Gary Odin
"...lovingly detailed, well-written thinking man's science fiction at its best...with more twists than Chubby Checker." --View From Valhalla

Meet the Author

J. Daniel Sawyer is a hat-wearing, obsessive-compulsive autodidact attempting to write his way out of the loony bin.
A self-aggrandizing science fiction and fantasy author who publishes lurid stories and, worse, the occasional popular philosophy article, he is also a very minor authority on Open Source media production (a topic on which he is, unfortunately, published regularly in LinuxJournal).
In addition to his wanton abuse of the printed word, he unscrupulously uses his decade-long experience as an audio and video producer with his painfully florid and gritty writing style to create deeply immersive audio universes. This habit, which he indulges in public, has garnered him seven Parsec nominations and helped him make his first professional fiction and philosophy sales (a trend which, for the good of the world at large, we can only hope abates soon). Meanwhile, his growing, rabid fan-base is currently plotting to imprison him and force him to produce endless new literary abominations for their amusement. We can only hope they succeed.

I'm not one to leave reviews very often, but this book deserves the praise. J. Daniel Sawyer weaves a twisted tail of intrigue, suspense, and bursts of action. The characters are very well developed and the author has a real talent for making them feel very real. I originally discovered the story when the author performed as a podcast. It keep me on the edge of my seat and it is only the first book of the series. If you want a very good read, you will not go wrong with this book.
