The biggest problem with employing criminals is that they're criminals.
What's a guy gotta do to get a little respect? As the head of an up-and-coming criminal empire, Carl Ramsey just can't seem to catch a break. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, he is forced to rely on loyalty, savvy, and the promise of a big payday to keep the rank and file in line. But how can he deliver on his promises while overseeing repairs on a dead ship, praying that his lover and best friend can recover their lost loot, and keeping the galaxy's most notorious crime lord at bay over long-range comm?
And to make matters worse, his parents dropped in for a visit and have settled in while he's away. It's going to take all the fast talking Carl can manage, and he still might need a little help from his friends.
