Lunzie, fresh from her adventures in The Death of Sleep , has discovered that the one good heavyworlder she ever met isn't so good after all.
Fordeliton, sent to investigate the connection between the super-rich and the planet pirates, and is now dying from a mysterious, slow poison.
Dupaynil, who has made the mistake of pushing Sassinak too far, and has been exiled to Seti space.
Aygar, who is out of prove he has brains as well heavyworlder brawn. And then there's Sassinak, ordered to report to FedCentral for the trial of mutineer Tanegli.
She's been told to disarm her shop when it enters restricted space; she's been told her crew can't have liberty of leave; and she's been told to follow all the rules.
But the only person who might be able to stop the disaster ahead has never been to follow the rules...

Review by comixminx
What went for the second volume in this series goes even more for this one, except that it has a more action-packed plot that, once you look at it, is in some ways dodgier than what has gone before. Military coup? Yes, but that's alright because we're the good guys, dressed in shining white and conspicuously getting on with all the alien races.
