For nearly thirty years, Penny has searched the galaxy for her missing son. She has a reputation throughout the solar systems as a relentless mother on a mission—and as a woman who won't let the chronic pain she suffers prevent her from achieving her goal.
Then Penny gets a tip. Someone on Rove City might have a clue to her son's whereabouts. This will probably be a dud, just like the last hundred tips, but she decides to try one last time. If she still can't find him, she'll settle down and live out her days on a nearby planet, and maybe try to find some peace for the first time in her life.
When the tip turns out to be a double cross, she finds herself flying across the galaxy toward a mysterious planet said to be inhabited by ghosts, with two disreputable people who she absolutely cannot trust—and still with no idea where her son is. Penny must confront her own hopes, fears, and grief over her lost boy as she hurtles through space, destination unknown.
Hook's Regret is the fourth book in the Rove City series, and a retelling of Peter Pan.
