The year is 2126.

Mars and the Moon have been colonized, and mankind has begun to push out
into the Jovian sector, the dark region of space beyond the asteroid belt rich with resources but
also rife with danger.

Clea Staples is the captain of Gringolet, a commuter vessel that ferries passengers and cargo for
the corporations that finance off-world colonies and mining operations.  She and her crew have
just accepted a lucrative job that will take them from Earth to Mars, and then beyond to a tiny
mining facility in orbit around distant Saturn.

What they don’t know, however, is that all is not as it seems. There are forces at work even
beyond the machinations of the corporations, and as a series of mishaps and seemingly chance
encounters bring them ever closer to disaster, it becomes clear that Staples and her crew will
need all of the skill, wit, and luck they can muster… or this Jovian run might be their last.
