Pirates are attacking commercial shipping, seizing the cargoes and killing the crews. These are shocking acts reminiscent of ancient times not heard of in this more civilized era. Who is behind this nefarious scheme? And why?
Jesmond Kalleni and Selene Donovan are soon working with FIS and The Kesnor to find out what is going on and who is responsible for these outrages.
Don’t they know that no one messes with the Kalleni Merchants?
As if that isn’t enough another mystery crops up. Why is someone shipping thousands of kilos of mushrooms from here to there, to there? How could that possibly pay enough to warrant breaking harsh Federation laws against trading with a coded planet? Also, what do the primitive mushroom growers know, but aren’t telling?
Come get to know that gutsy over-age Attorney General from Jellek and see Selene in new roles as flight mechanic/under-cover agent in Huilla Territory.
Ahh yes, an inter-planetary merchants life is never dull. Check the Kallenis for proof of that.
