I am tired of living in mother's shadow. She is a formidable woman who paved the way for all females, no, all humans, in the judiciary by securing a seat in the Intergalactic High Court. But her success is my hell. Why, you ask? Because no-one sees me. They only see Margaret Wright's daughter. And next to her I look weak. Unworthy. Not up to par.
I exchange my Intergalactic Bureau of Investigations career for something less fabulous. Bounty hunting. I even consider moving to a new planet! But then I kiss Bren, my best friend. Fine, if you insist, she is my only friend. These are the first steps in growing a spine. I am kicking against everything I have known.
But is twenty-eight too late to bloom? And will I be able to withstand Margaret's fierce attempts to pull me back into the shadows?
The year is 2053 and Angela Wright, sometimes funny, always sarcastic, kicker of ass and hunter of criminals, ventures out into space. And the cold wide world.
