The six star systems of the Orion Confederacy are under attack from an enemy humanity never expected and cannot understand. And the crime rate’s through the roof.
While the Null War rages on border worlds, the average citizen is more likely to be murdered by their neighbour than killed by the enemy. This is true most of all on the planet Thor, in the grips of the violent terrorists denouncing the government who call themselves 'Ragnarok' - for now is the end of all worlds. Police are targeted, peaceful protests turn to gun battles, civilians are shot in the streets, and they’re using stolen military weapons to do it all.
Into this chaos are sent Commander Sara Ramirez and Lieutenant Maggie Tycho, Marshals with the mandate to hunt criminals across the Confederacy. Their only guide is John Harrigan, a disgraced Marine whose freedom depends on his helping them - and who seems to know more than he’s letting on. But Thor is a hot-bed of corruption and as humanity fights a war for its survival, Ramirez and Tycho find themselves fighting for a whole world - and, while society burns, the humanity in themselves.
Ragnarok is a science fiction thriller, and the first book of the Echo Case Files.
