After fifteen years in space, Cord Cahill is coming home. His parents passed long ago, his younger brother is off defending border worlds from the expanding Republic, and his sister, whom he left behind, is dead. How she died, he doesn't know. But she left him a video message predicting her own death, and he wants to know what would drive her to do such a thing. His home has changed, but so has Cord, who now wears the gray cloak and hat of a Sentinel. They mark him for what he is; a gun for hire. But this isn't about Cord, it's about family, about Katie; how she lived, and ultimately, how she died. THIS IS A NOVELLA

This story boils down to the love of a brother for a lost sister. As someone who lost a little sister, this story hit me in a tender spot. The efforts of Cord to find out what kind of "natural causes" his sister died from resonated with me very deeply. The story itself is a great romp through the wild west in space. The blend of old world values, high tech gadgets, and (as usual for Patrick's writings) intensely believable characters that are true to themselves makes for a wonderful story.

I agree, this book shows the importance of family and my uncle died from cancer so I felt for Cord who's sister died (she was murdered ). :(
