A space-elevator has secrets, and pirates are about to trigger it.
Vorstogen. Reporter Steve Gortney called it the ‘Eighteenth die-of-boredom back-world visited in the last three months.' A world primarily known for producing grain, the only other claim to fame was a long-abandoned alien space-elevator which the human colonists adapted for their use.
His viewpoint changes when an approaching pirate ship interrupts Senator Bolstrom's election campaign speech. But, instead of joining everyone in the shelters to wait out the raid, he helps a local family find their missing young daughter.
And for an exclusive on a pirate raid-in-progress.
Only this isn't a simple raid. Steve discovers a secret about the pirates that could mean his life.
And the space-elevator has a few secrets of its own, and the pirates are about to trigger it.
