How do you win a high-stakes game when you don't even know you're being played?
Competent, driven, broken: Moira Dolan is a talented investigator who buries herself in work to hide from her past. She succeeded, until her brother, Keagan, wrecked her career. Now she works for the Proteus Collective.
By night, she's tormented by the same dream. By day, she's assigned dead-end cases by Ferris - a boss who seems intent on making her fail. It appears personal, until Keagan goes missing and Ferris' actions are cast in a whole new light...
Moira thinks her latest assignment will have her chasing ghosts between the stars, but instead she uncovers a deadly conspiracy threatening the precarious balance between the galaxy's major powers, one that could cost billions of lives.
If you're not predator, you're prey.

About the Author
T. James came late to the world of fiction writing and poetry, his creativity having been buried for 25 years under a lab coat, Fat Cat business suit, a charity volunteer's holey jeans, and a hospital therapist's uniform.
At the present time he is perfecting his ability to bend the written word to his will across a range of genres, styles, and forms. He has wheezed his way up the knoll of the novella, squeezed through the constriction of non-fiction, and breezed to rest in the tepee of poetry before he found a big enough word-shovel to dig out a novel.
He continues to believe that "X" marks the spot, but wonders why every treasure map is upside down, no matter which way he turns it.
