Former Marine Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr is attempting to
build a new life with salvage operator Craig Ryder on his
ship, the Promise. Turns out civilian life is rougher than
she imagined - salvage operators are losing both cargo and
lives to pirates.
And when they attack the Promise, Craig is taken prisoner
and Torin is left for dead. When Torin finds out why the
pirates needed Craig, she calls in the Marines to get him
back - and to stop the pirates from changing the balance of
power in known space.
