Cole Riker is a Slip Runner.
A contractor tasked with finding alien salvage in exchange for credits. For an ex-
smuggler like Cole, there’s a catch: Don’t break the terms of parole. That means doing
things by the book. It’s a simple gig.
Find alien salvage, turn it in, get paid.
Until it’s not.
Everything changes when a stroke of luck lands him in an exclusive sector that
promises one hell of a payout. There he finds the material he’s been sent to recover,
along with something more. The discovery reveals a secret no one could have guessed,
one that forces Cole to violate his parole and kicks off an intergalactic manhunt.
The game has changed.
With the authorities and criminals alike stalking his every move, he must rely on skills learned from his past to evade capture and clear his name. A shift in humanity’s future is at hand, and Cole is the one holding the key.
He just has to survive long enough to use it.
