Wisecracking star-sailor CWO Gus Johansson is involuntarily retired from the Governance Navy and bored. He’s just another broke beach bum on the sleepy outer system planet Terne.
But when Gus hauls a 1400-year-old accident-prone robot out of the sea and boards a long-lost sentient spaceship, things get exciting fast. His old enemy, Captain Harrison “Hazy” Grey, still wants revenge for a wild weekend years ago. Grey is convinced that this time he can finally best Gus and get an Admiral’s flag, if only he can capture that ship; and he doesn’t care who he has to kill to get it. Gus must assemble a team of old friends and add some new ones to escape. Maybe he should have stayed on the beach.
