Captain Andy Sykes just wants to keep his family in one piece.
Once a combat pilot for the TSF, he gave it all up for love and a family. Since then, he’s managed to scrape a living hauling cargo between the Jovian Combine and InnerSol. It’s not glamorous, his ship’s falling apart, and it’s boring as hell, but it keeps them in fuel and calories.
When a cargo run to Cruithne Station meets with more than one catastrophe, Andy finds himself accepting an offer a less desperate man would refuse: delivering an illegal AI named Lyssa.
The AI is the property of Heartbridge, a powerful, interplanetary corporation, and they want their latest weapon back. With a private army, gangs, and pirates all vying for the precious cargo, even if he succeeds, Lyssa’s very existence may spark a war like no other humanity has ever seen.
