Synopsis

A remote corner of a bleak system… A broken-down gunboat, stuck in space… An incompetent captain and a misfit crew… A pirate ship, a silent target, and a whole bunch of secrets… So how's YOUR day going?

There have to be easier ways to make a living – easier than dying slowly in an obsolete boat, as its power drains out and life support fails. Forget the job; forget the pirate problem: there's only time for a desperate jury-rig and maybe a little hand-wringing! And anyway…what are the odds of running into trouble way out there?

Set in a distant future among the stars, this series introduces us to Ejoq Dosantos, professional gunner for corporate and privately-owned armed merchant ships. Pirates, venal business interests, and interstellar intrigue abound, but sometimes it seems like Ejoq (who might have a slight authority issue) is his own worst enemy!
