But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe. "Interplanetary adventure the way it ought to be written." -- George R. R. Martin

Professional reviews

"Narrator Jefferson Mays delivers an old-fashioned space opera. After colonizing all the planets, humanity is working on star travel. A drifting spaceship harbors dangerous secrets, and several forces battle each other while a few ordinary people do their best just to stay alive. Mays narrates with empathy, adding to the characters' emotional depth, and subtle accents help differentiate the cast. Mays, a veteran of mystery novels, gives his delivery a more hard-boiled tone than is common for sci-fi, a style that adds pulp appeal. A.Z.W. 2012 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
