Kris Longknife has been ordered back to human space.
Sandy Santiago is a woman with a whole lot of problems. She’s ordered to replace Kris Longknife, but can any mere mortal fill the shoes of a Longknife . . . and Kris Longknife most of all? Follow Sandy as she’s introduced to the mess on Canopus Station. Watch her as she meets cats (with nuclear weapons!), birds, and vicious alien raiders. Oh, and she has to share Alwa Station with Rita Nuu-Longknife. How does a gal get so lucky?
