Jack Jackson - just "Jax" to his friends, if he had any - finds his life turned upside-down when a small, domed neighborhood on the fourth planet orbiting Barnard's Star loses life support on his watch. Just a lowly operator, Jax is accused of mass homicide, arrested, and faced with a mound of impossible evidence against him. His only ally is Stanford Runstom, an officer of Modern Policing and Peacekeeping. Runstom is a detective at heart, passed over for promotion time and time again, just waiting for a chance to blow open a meaningful case and make something of his career and his life, even if it means risking everything. Together, the two will try to exonerate Jax by finding the real killer, still at large and protected by layer upon layer of obscurity. They'll face off against space gangs, greedy politicians, and corrupt cops along the road that takes them off the planet Jax has never left before in his life and into the depths of space.

In a domed city on a planet orbiting Barnard's Star, a recently hired maintenance man named Kane has just committed murder.
Minutes later, the airlocks on the neighbourhood block are opened and the murderer is asphyxiated along with thirty-one innocent residents.
Jax, the lowly dome operator on duty at the time, is accused of mass homicide and faced with a mound of impossible evidence against him.
His only ally is Runstom, the rogue police officer charged with transporting him to a secure off-world facility. The pair must risk everything to prove Jax didn’t commit the atrocity and uncover the truth before they both wind up dead.About the Author:
