A man walks into a bar…
In the Port of Call bar on Space Station Sidon a man sits at a card game. He’s ruthless, he’s unforgiving, he terrifies his opponents into submission, and he almost never loses. His name is Alex Hart, and he is waiting for someone.
Reuben Briggs never could play nice with others. As a professor he couldn’t stay out of trouble. As the National Security Advisor he couldn’t resist using other people’s secrets to leverage his agenda. He always attracted the wrong kind of attention, and in 2125 that attention turned deadly. A Lunar judge wants his secrets. A corrupt senator wants him dead. The Green Lady wants his fealty.
For three years he’s been one jump ahead of the bounty hunters as he fought his way through the underworld of South America. Living by his wits and the fall of the cards, he’s stolen a new name, bought a new face, and scammed a seat on a shuttle to Space Station Sidon. He’s a man used to micromanaging destiny, and he doesn’t know that he’s walking into a trap more dangerous than anything he’s faced before.
Alex Hart wants to play cards with him.
Walking into the Port of Call, Briggs thinks he’s left all the hunters behind him. But in the looking-glass world above the gravity well, he’s about to discover that survival, like poker, is just another sport.
And in this contest, it’s not whether you win or lose. It’s how you rig the game.
