Ambassador Penelope Aaron is attending an Association of Planets gala. Her cyborg husband Brock Mann doesn’t like crowds, and he launches into a familiar lecture on what she should do if she ever finds herself in danger. The first line is his.
“You know the procedure?”
She sighed. “Yes.”
She rolled her eyes. “If there is ever an incident, I should do whatever I can to stay out of sight; seek cover.”
“And I’ll come get you.”
“And you’ll come get me.”
An incident was a euphemism for a threat, a danger. It would do no good to remind him that her only incident had occurred when she’d been with him.
Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping.
Anyone who is anyone attends the annual Association of Planets gala, the largest, fanciest soiree in the galaxy. Escorted by her husband Brock, Penelope “Pia” Aaron attends the event, to mix and mingle with the galaxy’s power elite to further her career as an AOP ambassador.
Brock Mann isn’t there to serve as his wife’s plus-one. A cyborg and a field agent with the covert force Cyber Operations, Brock knows the glitzy, glamorous evening isn’t going to end happily for one individual. An intercepted partial communique has revealed that one gala attendee will be the target of a kidnapping. Who the intended victim is, why the person is being taken and by whom—that’s what Cy-Ops must find out to stop the abduction.
And then Pia is taken.
Without knowing who or why she was targeted, Brock must race against the clock to find his wife before she’s killed.
Saving the girl and the galaxy just got personal.
