When you’re a Frontier Corps Ranger in Sector 12 there’s always plenty of work that needs to be done. In your role as soldier there are paramilitary groups to fight and alien agencies to fend off. As a scout and spy you need to stay alert for signs of attacks on human space. As an operative you must do whatever you can to persuade the alien governments of The Other Side to leave Frontier Corps alone. Fortunately Rev (sometimes called Red, Rubicon, Rab and other names he doesn’t care to repeat,) is good at multi-tasking. Especially because he has an additional duty— a secret mission from Frontier Corps. Recent events on the planet Acan have given him a potential lead, and he’s determined not to let the trail slip away this time. He will need that kind of focus, because there’s a new player in Sector 12, an anti-Ranger paramilitary group with powerful backers. They’ve just finished devastating the Rangers in Sector 13 and now they’re looking for fresh victims and new victories.
