On the surface, the galaxy seems peaceful. Humankind prospers from the Capital World to the far reaches of The Corridor. But to those who can see the signs, it's clear something is wrong. Long, dark fingers are pulling strings inside the military, making clandestine deals with enemy states, and fulfilling some dark design.
Calvin is an intelligence agent working for the Imperial government. He's young, his methods are unorthodox, but he gets results. So when a former military hero steals a warship and goes rogue--threatening to start a war, Calvin is sent to eliminate him.
But as he chases his prey across the stars, he realizes they are both pawns in a shadowy chess game that shakes kingdoms, divides empires, and threatens civilization everywhere. And if he is to uncover the mystery and expose the conspiracy he must confront--and embrace--the darkest elements of the galaxy and throw himself, his career, and everyone he loves into the line of fire.

A must read!
I like Sci Fi and I like mysteries. I absolutely loved the two together. The characters were deep enough that I am still thinking about them days later. The author was able to paint a great picture of the space and time without laborious descriptions. The story and the places still linger on. In this case the characters were plausible (not so extreme or too shallow) and intriguing with their layers and complexity. As the others have stated - I couldn't put it down. I am literally hungry for the sequel.
Extremely well written and very interesting. Looking forward to the sequel.
Once I started reading, I could not put this book down. This author has a rare talent for weaving together a captivating plot with fascinating and relatable characters. I highly recommend this book!
