This is the second in The Goodall space opera adventure series. Joan Chikage is a young and untested lieutenant on the deep space cargo ship Goodall. What she wants most is to stop being afraid, to prove her mettle, to be a valued member of the crew. Without warning, without explanation, Chikage suddenly gets the chance she's always wanted--to be a hero. There's murder, mutiny, and betrayal ahead. A coming of age adventure set in deep space.
