He is sent as the `Arbitrator' to `Pirrus' in another solar system, to try and stop a rebellion and bring matters under control.
Will he complete the mission successfully to earn enough funds for his regeneration?
Only time will tell. Just when he thinks he has accomplished his task, he meets Gina, the daughter of a rebel, and finds out that there is a plot by foreign powers to invade the planet...
The plot thickens when Brown also discovers that there is a mole in his organisation who is undermining his efforts to succeed.
