Something unexpected happens on a routine stop at Luna’s Armstrong Station which threatens to upend Melanie Destin’s new life and put her and her crewmates in mortal peril.
When she chooses to help a runaway slave, Mel discovers that the young woman has a secret; one that will endanger anyone who encounters her.
Hunted by a corrupt government official intent on silencing them, Mel must find a way to get them off Luna and away from danger, all without drawing the unwanted attention of a powerful interplanetary crime czar.
Roaming across the Solar System, a reluctant and unlikely heroine sets herself against overwhelming odds, and she’s not going to take crap from anyone who stands in her way.
Can Mel get herself out of this mess without someone dying?
Can her life ever be normal again?
Will she live long enough to find out?
