Never hit a political target.
Even Pirates have limits.
Falsely accused of destroying an Institute science vessel, Captain Ethan Walker discovers the attack might be covering something far more sinister. The assassination of one of the Coalition’s most beloved citizens.
Chancellor Chei Lu.
The Commonwealth of Pirates has rules against killing a political icon. Racing to prove his innocence, Ethan must uncover the truth before the Council of Captains demands he pay for his actions.
Fighting to clear his name of murder, Captain Walker and his crew, head to a lawless freeport on the edge of rival pirate territory, only to discover the chancellor may not be dead. With no other option, they must attempt the impossible, and rescue Chancellor Lu.
If they fail, Walker will lose his position in the only group that can give him protection against the Coalition.
But, if they succeed, it will catapult the Commonwealth into a civil war.
