Fiction, Science Fiction
Jordan McKell is the pilot of a struggling trader line, shut out by the Patth monopoly on fast space travel. So, naturally, he jumps at the chance to pilot a ship— even if the cargo is suspect and the circumstances suspicious. But when accidents start happening aboard and the entire galaxy is out to get them, Jordan has to figure out what is up before he ends up dead— or before the secret cargo of the ship ends up in Patth hands.
This is a fun read, and I simply can't tell you much about it without giving things away. Zahn managed to catch me off guard with a couple of revelations because some of the secrets are fairly obvious... which of course means that they're red herrings designed to delude you.
