Asteroid belt miner Collier South is on the brink. The once-exciting frontier of space has been overtaken by corporate creep, and he stands as one of the last independent beltrunners in the system. Almost squeezed out of the only life he’s ever known by impersonal conglomerates and a vindictive ex-lover, he’s desperate for a strike. But what he finds this time has the power to change his life forever. Worse, it has the power to change the fate of the entire system, and the corporations are on a hunt to pry it from his stubborn fingers.
