Worse, his prisoner had apparently committed suicide by jumping through an airlock into hard vacuum. He decided to let Maris's corpse be found with the diplomat's ID's to avoid more questions, but Maris used the ID's to escape to the planet the Diplomat was about to investigate-and found herself in a hornet's nest of corrupt officials conspiring with a local tyrant. Surrounded by people who wanted her eliminated, the only person she could trust was Gabrel, a young officer who set of on a cross-planet trek with her to get evidence that would expose th web of corruption.
