The Vacuum of Space
by Julia Huni
It’s a dirty galaxy and someone has to clean it.
Avoiding the wealthy inhabitants on the upper levels of Station Kelly Kornienko is Triana’s number one rule. Well, number two, right after “eat all the chocolate.”
But when one of her cleaning bots finds a dead body, all the rules go out the window. Or the airlock, since the windows on SK2 don’t open.
When a highly connected security agent asks for help, Triana can’t ignore him; it’s cooperate or find a new job. A girl has to pay the rent, even on a crappy studio compartment.
Working with a shiny detective beats a shuttle dirt-side, so Triana lends her programming skills to Agent O’Neill’s investigation. Together, they find more victims and evidence of a major cover-up.
It will take all Triana’s technical talents, most of O’Neill’s connections, and some really excellent croissants to stop the killer.
