Captain Tagon has a difficult mission ahead of him. He must convince his own company that the contract to rescue former General Xinchub is worth taking, in spite of the fact that every man, woman, and carbosilicate amorph in the company would rather see Xinchub dead. It would be ever so much easier if they could arrive just a little bit too late and instead of rescuing King Xinchub the Prandial, Tagon's Toughs could get paid to steal his body...
Those of you who've been reading the series up to now will be very excited to see the death of a particular long-running antagonist. And what the antagonist! Though be careful that that pleasure may be very short-lived.
