Billie, a loner security guard, convinces herself that a reclusive author can provide vital information on the whereabouts of her missing brother. The brother she swore to protect after a family tragedy ten years ago. She must overcome her aloofness and engage with strangers in order to progress her investigation. Things take a turn when two bumbling criminals kidnap the author. As their paths cross, events soon spiral downwards, propelling Billie into a desperate fight for her own survival.
Along the way she interacts with a vicious crime boss, a dismissive female cop, and a drug cartel.
Can she keep her promise to protect her brother?

The first task facing Brell Sturlach and her robot assistant is to liberate a prisoner about to be executed.

The story unfolds into an action packed adventure of cat and mouse across the galaxy.
Who will find the Locardum first?
