This awesome book roars out of the starting gates and never looks back. Along with telling social commentary, it is chock-full of danger, adventure and romance —
a terrific keeper!

When you have six brothers, proving yourself can be an issue, but Torrie Masters is not about to let her first job as captain on one of her family's starships end in a hijacking. So, when pirates board her ship and take part of her cargo, she decides to fight back.

Qaade Deter, known as the Ghost Rider of the Dead Zone, is a feared pirate whose face and identity are hidden. His true purpose is to rescue slaves with erased memories. A former slave himself, Qaade is on a mission and will do whatever it takes to save as many people as possible.

When Torrie learns that unlisted cargo on her ship is Phellium, a drug that can help heal minds, she is shocked. But, she becomes outraged when she learns that her ship also contains Ricytin, the drug that scrubs minds. Then, a madman with a grudge decides to engage Qaade in a deadly game leading him to join forces with Torrie in order to save thousands of lives.
