A Spacer's Rules For Success:
1.) Never be desperate
2.) Never do more than your job description
3.) Never, ever go down the well
Ejoq needs work. The tramp starship GRIZZELDA needs a gunner. But what starts as a last-minute personnel replacement soon turns into something far more, with a non-functional duty station, his predecessor's emotional fallout, and a deeply buried secret that will change the course of nations.
Through a dark odyssey across a violent, frozen world, and a haze of lies and shadowy clues, Ejoq will face frenzied zealots, frightened elitists, and dangerous mercenaries on an unknown mission.
Revolution, intrigue, and battles among the stars. Better take a DEEP breath...
