She is programmed to kill. 
He’ll do anything to survive. 
When Captain Caleb Shepperd is released from prison, all he wants to do is keep his head down and smuggle contraband through the nine systems. But there’s a problem with that plan. The synthetic human stowed away in his cargo bay carries secrets from a past he thought he’d escaped. Secrets that could bring him and the nine systems to its knees. 
Now the authorities want Shepperd dead and his ship in pieces. And the synth? Well, she has an itchy trigger finger and murder on her synthetic mind.
Shepperd is about to discover he can’t outrun his past, especially when that past has orders to kill. 
Action, drama and suspense collide in this no-holds-barred sci-fi adventure!

    An excellent story where karma will bit you in your butt. Caleb Sheppard has his past come back to him for revenge. You have an excellent mystery and the ending is not what I expected. Read this awesome book and learn about a society with synthetic beings with unusual features. With the plot twist you have a couple of surprises! Enjoy as I plan on reading the next in the series!
