No plan survives first contact with the enemy.
Space is a deadly business, and Knox knows this first hand. He’s lost a lot, and he has the scars to prove it.
But then pirates target a town that Knox loves. They kidnap the town’s children and sell them into slavery. Knox knows they’ll be back for more and he won’t let it happen again. The town needs shields and he’ll get them, even if he has to steal them.
Knox devises a carefully crafted plan and hires the perfect crew. He’ll “borrow” from Caravan Suppliers—the Goliath of space shipping—a company that can afford to lose a shield generator or two. No one will know he was there.
But Caravan Suppliers has a dirty slave habit, and they’ll kill to keep it secret. When Knox stumbles onto it, he endangers his crew and his family. Will this operation cost Knox more than he’s willing to pay?
