Faster-than-light travel changes everything
Casmir Francis commands Universe Three agents hidden across the Solar System. Together they stay a step ahead of the United Government.
The game changes when the UG achieves faster-than-light travel and the ability to control the galaxy. To remain free Casmir's web of operatives must pull off the most audacious operation ever undertaken.
Failure means Universe Three will be destroyed and Casmir will lose his family, his life, and the world of his dreams.
Success could be worse.
