There’s Grinders waiting for him to tell them what to do, there are people wondering why their city seems to be falling apart around them and looking for someone to blame… and no-one’s seen Doktor Sleepless in weeks.

Where did the space heroes go to die?

Mary Raven has to die. Today might be Mary Raven’s last day on Earth, trapped on the last spaceport where no-one cares about murder and the only real currency is fear. She has her dead father’s raygun, and that’s enough for space hero turned arms dealer Lightning Bowman to want her dead. But she also has her dead father’s diary. And now she knows something no-one else in the settlement does…and they’ll want her dead for that, too…
