Two-fisted labor organizer Padma Mehta is on the edge of space and the edge of burnout. All she wants is to retire, buy a rum distillery, and spend the rest of her life on the beach. To do that, she has to recruit five hundred people to the Union, and she’s thirty-three short. When a small-time scam artist tells her about forty people ready to tumble down the space elevator to break free from her old bosses, Padma checks it out.
Now Padma's up to her eyeballs in trouble as everyone around her starts turning up dead. Can she fight her way through the city's warehouses, sewage plants, and up the elevator itself to save her job, her planet, and her sanity?
And can she do it all before Happy Hour?
