How do you prove innocence? Proving your complex system and the designs behind it could not cause a reactor accident may be impossible. But the accident did happen and the Drezvir mining colony is dangerously short of power as they head into bitter winter. The Farr Sector Judiciary is taking the case to court with charges of manslaughter due to criminal negligence and they are not likely to be lenient to Outsiders.
An expert team of industrial risk analysts have assembled on Drezvir to try to find the cause of the accident, unintentional or otherwise. Dr. Mitra Kael, Power Systems Engineer is giving them all the support she can as various subcontractors arrive from across the galaxy. So is Dr. Dreen Pendi, former head of Nemizcan Computing and Mitra's lover. Dr. Ari Delmaice, President of Delmaice Power Systems, is out to make sure anyone but him takes the fall.
Chett Linderson, now head of Nemizcan Computing is not impressed with Ari's attitude and Chett is the get even type. Chett's temper has already made him a dangerous enemy, hacker Klarak Voroth.
Joran Lantonelle still means well but is focused on walking back on stage and reclaiming his status as galactic superstar. Bojo Camrail, is trying to keep him in line but he is getting distracted between espionage on his home planet and a romance with Brys, Dreen's best hacker.
At least Dreen and Mitra are together at last. Or are they? C.C. Windegren, terraformer and Mitra's childhood friend, is on Drezvir and he is wondering why they have wasted all of these years. As a face from the past appears and Dreen's secrets start slipping out, Mitra finds herself trying to decide just what Dreen is really like. And obviously C.C. and his environmental activist friends have a few secrets of their own.

About the Author
Their lives were changed by a severely disabling virus and 10 years were a write off. Don now runs Apps & More Software Design developing scheduling software for the Mac and mental health software for the iPhone and iPad. He has the caregiver role as Judi is still severely disabled.
They began writing science fiction for their own pleasure, both for the fun of creating the story line, and to try to extend current technology to the far future. It was natural for them to use their background in physics and in industry when creating the Gingezel series. It took twelve years to finish the first four epic novel series, so of course they could not anticipate the reactor accident in Japan that suddenly made this series so timely.
In addition to writing science fiction, Judi and Don are internationally published haiga poets, artists, and award winning surface designers.
