After taking a Peacemaker job to find missing fuel, Perry finds something far more sinister than simple theft—a voice, crying out in a forge of heat and flame, and the discovery reveals a series of acts so vicious that nothing short of revenge will suffice.
Following leads across the stars, Van, Perry, and Torina discover the wealthy elite are doing more than just taking fuel.
They’re stealing lives.
