Captain Marcus Calvert must unlock its alien secrets in time to save his crew. Set in the author’s Confederation universe of his “Night’s Dawn” trilogy, this gripping tale tells the story of the last flight of Joshua Calvert’s father. This story also explains why the Lady Macbeth was in such poor shape when it first made its appearance in The Reality Dysfunction.
