Publisher's Summary

Aralyn Solari spent the last three years of her life in the galaxy's worst prison after a compromised run ruined her flawless smuggling record five years prior. Now that she's free and has the promise of an easy job with a ridiculously large pay off, her last gig should be a cinch. As long as she follows the runner's standard, anyway: get in, get out, get paid. Then, she can spend the rest of her years retired on Earth, hidden away with some well-deserved credits.

All of that changes, however, when she runs into her ex-boyfriend, Caden Madigan: the man she suspects of setting her up all those years ago. Now, he's wearing a UDA badge and uniform and says that she's in danger and being set up again. To Aralyn, the benefit of a huge payday outweighs the risks - or so she thinks until her "easy" job turns sour and she ends up wanted for a crime she didn't commit, her smuggled goods get stolen, and her ship - down to the toilet paper - gets trashed.

Now, Aralyn's got no choice but to try a last-ditch effort to get her payload back, get her money, and maybe even some closure...which proves difficult when she finds herself caught in a conspiracy that threatens everything and everyone around her. With government agencies and stone-cold killers on her trail, Aralyn's life has literally become a ticking time bomb. Caught up in lies, revenge, and a harrowing game of blackmail, one misstep could end with her captured, enslaved, or perhaps even worse: thrown back inside the galaxy's worst prison for the rest of her life, waiting to die.

Aspires to Firefly and Cowboy Bebop

It's entertaining overall and feels like three episodes of a TV series. Definitely space opera lite. There are a lot of cliche characters and situations that detracted from the overall story. The narration was very good and kept me listening.
