An assassin canít afford a conscience. Itís bad for business.
Ex-soldier turned assassin Gage Brassan is having a very bad year. First, an unwelcome attack of conscience has him switching targets at the last moment, which doesnít sit too well with the criminal organization that hired him. Then an old girlfriendís betrayal and a trip to prison stir up memories of his military past and a promise left unfulfilled.
Tortured by his haunted past and hunted by the organization he betrayed, Gage seeks the truth behind the execution of the elite military patrol he once commanded. With the help of Jak, a Rigian street kid, and Joanna, the sister of an old army buddy, Gage follows the blood trail from the war-torn Androsian system to the highest echelons of the Galactic Security Force to the corrupt halls of the Rigian Peopleís Palace.
On the run, unsure whom he can trust, he struggles with a growing attraction to Joanna while trying to protect his estranged father from the personal fallout of a life gone wrong.
He knows the answers are out there. The trick will be living long enough to find them.
