Lieutenant Patrick Brogan, a cop with the NYPD, needs a change.
When a botched ambush on an arms smuggling operation throws up more questions than answers, it seems all roads lead to the planet Altor. Applying for a transfer, Brogan must uproot his family to continue his investigations.
The lieutenant and his partner, Officer Haldane, find themselves involved in a case like nothing they've known before. Navigating their way through the streets of Demeter City with new, alien colleagues, they uncover a network of crime that stretches halfway across the galaxy.
But is the real threat closer to home?
