On the cut-throat streets of Tarkis, orphaned teens like Rath end up in jail...or dead. So when the shadowy Janus Group offers him a chance to earn riches beyond his wildest dreams, Rath seizes it. But the Janus Group is as ruthless as the elite assassins it controls. He'll have to survive their grueling, off-world training, and then fulfill all fifty kills in his contract to earn a single cent of that wealth. And ending so many lives comes with a price Rath can't anticipate. It will certainly cost him his innocence. It may cost him his life.
