it was amazing

This was my first intro to the Alliance/Union universe and there was something peculiarly satisfying about this tale of a down-on-its-luck small merchant ship, slipping about the edges of an almost cold war, running ever closer to the edge of its ability to survive, even guided by the dead hand of the former captain (so to speak). It seemed like the perfect introduction to the macro-politics going on above the characters' heads. Once you've read this one the rest of the universe makes sense.

Dennis Castello I completely agree! This book, and the image of the lone ship eking out a living on the fringes of space, has stuck with me over the years. One of my all-time favorites.
