Pirates + a frontier system + a rookie captain? Good times.
Sydney Chambers is the Navy's brightest star until a superior's folly brings a court martial down on her career. Though found innocent, she's still tainted ... and though her Admiralty mentor salvages a captaincy for her, it comes with banishment to the farthest frontier system in the Confederacy. There she must face down two powerful bands of pirates armed only with a Navy ship recently salvaged from the scrap heap ... and only the vaguest idea of who her enemies are, or who her friends might be.

Brian Jaybush cut his teeth reading science fiction, starting with Asimov's I, Robot at age 10 and progressing insatiably from there. He has been writing all his life, starting as a journalist in junior high school and continuing with legal and technical writing later in life (BA History, 1975; Juris Doctor, 1978). Retirement from 30 years in the telecommunications industry has allowed him to concentrate on fiction writing full time, in partnership with his son, Timothy.
Timothy Jaybush also began reading and writing science fiction at an early age, leading to an uncanny ability to construct unusual and entertaining story lines. In addition to working full-time, Tim graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Philosophy.
