The seventh novel in The Shadow Wars.
In an isolated region of space, four survivors of brutal conflicts meet and are once again forced to fight for their lives...
On the pleasure planet known as Mezzanine, a pair of mercenaries on the run from the law find themselves engaged in a shootout with men in dark armor...
The lone survivor of an entire planet is recovered from a ship adrift in space...
What do these events have in common? Each of these people has fought and survived against incredible odds. Each of them has faced down the shadowy government branch known only as Dark Operations and lived to tell about it.
Now, the truth finally comes out: Dark Ops is no longer operating within the confines of the law. They've gone rogue, and the government is desperate to put them down. They want to hire these survivors for that very purpose. United against a common threat, this unlikely band of warriors is tasked with a new objective: recover a scientist willing to turn over Dark Ops' secrets. Unfortunately, it won't be easy. The planet he's on is owned by the enemy, and they're going to do everything in their power to keep him...
