What bloodcurdling secret does the Minnie Maru harbor in her belly?
When the corpse of a senior cadet is discovered in the outer waste disposal area of the Space Academy kitchen, apparently run over by a maneuvering trash rover, Admiral Bellamy sends Captain Jorgensson to investigate. Despite her skills, the captain however soon finds herself surrounded by an impenetrable wall of silence that prevents her from finding conclusive evidence.
Frustrated by her fruitless efforts, Captain Jorgensson tells Bellamy that only by infiltrating an undercover agent he will have the chance to shed some light on the otherwise mysterious death of the cadet. Immediately thinking of Jim, Bellamy contacts him. To his regret, though, the admiral learns that the young man has no intention to desert his girlfriend and his new job. But something happens that will make him reconsider.
A deal with Bellamy starts Jim on a new crazy adventure that shall take him to enlist in the Silver Arrow—a legendary and illegal race between cadets to elect the best pilot ever—and to uncover the horrible destiny of a spaceship lost twenty-five years before—the Minnie Maru.
Jim's second adventure is a space opera of about 225,000 words.
