Brell Sturlach, in her early forties, is a disgraced former Police Corps senior officer, ex-convict and now cargo pilot. When her friend’s daughter, Spinney, is reported missing, Brell investigates the circumstances.
After initial enquiries stall, Spinney appears as a contestant on Cirkus Disturbanze, a bizarre fight to the death media show, run by a decadent crime boss. Brell vows to find Spinney, whatever the personal cost.
With little information available, and after Police Corps failures, she employs a criminal gang after lying to gain their release from prison. With her own liberty at stake, and accompanied by an android assistant, Brell must manage not only her new team but her own difficulties. In what she considers a suicide mission, she must find and stop the Cirkus show before Spinney’s final fight.
This book can be read on its own or as the fourth book in the Brell Sturlach Adventure series. Books 1-3 have been re-edited, updated and re-published in 2022 within a single volume.
