Daniel Sarcher’s peaceful productive life is thrown into turmoil the day his wife runs off with insurance salesman, Milos Constant. The chest full of gold left in her place only makes Daniel angrier and he follows the pair with a twelve gauge shotgun loaded with buckshot. But not all is as it seems and he is inadvertently transported to a distant future and finds himself struggling for life on a slave mine in a galaxy at the fringe of human colonization.
For Daniel to live and find his wife, who he now realizes was not so crazy, he must escape the airless ball of metal that is the planet Lectos. But little does Daniel realize that time is quite literally running out to find Debra for Milos Constant has put into motion a far grander cosmic plan than any mere wife stealing operation and Daniel is the only person who can stop him.
