The Ugly Tin Orrery
Captain Ramos never thought a cheap child's toy would be the gateway to murder and a mystery that holds countless lives in the balance... More
The citizens of the duchies in North America rely upon travel by air and rail. Unfortunately for them, pirates stalk both land and sky. Captain Marta Ramos is infamous as the scourge of the Rocky Mountains, but mysteries have a terrible habit of falling into her lap, and she just can't seem to let them alone.
During a robbery of a freight train bound for the Grand Duchy of Salt Lake City, Captain Ramos picks up a tin orrery that is ugly, cheap, and plainly a toy. But when she learns its former owner has been murdered, her curiosity is piqued. The trail leads her on a chase across duchies and into dangerous political waters.
When her own crew is put in danger, all for the sake of a poorly made child's toy, Captain Ramos must unravel the true purpose of the ugly tin orrery before it's too late for them all.
