Denver Boyd wasn’t born yesterday. So when he picks up a distress call from a federation vessel, the shrewd nineteen-year-old is torn between taking a thankless job and getting himself blacklisted. But when he discovers it was a ruse from the ship’s mechanic seeking to escape the brig, the young wrecker agrees in exchange for information about his missing family.
Racing for a remote station in search of the promised intel, Denver instead slams into a past he’d rather forget… a notorious pirate he crossed years before. And with the only way out a dangerous stint stealing from deadly assassins, the teenaged spacer hurtles towards a confrontation with a brother he thought was dead.
