The first book in a fast-paced military SF series, full of action, adventure and intrigue.
Vulcan was a factory planet, centuries old, Company run, ugly as sin, and unfeeling as death. Vulcan bred just two types of native - complacent or tough ... and Sten was tough.
When his family died in a mysterious accident, Sten rebelled, harassing the Company from the metal world's endless mazelike warrens.
Sten would have ended up just another burnt-out Delinquent if he hadn't rescued a mysterious stranger who turned out to be his ticket of Vulcan - and an express ride back!
