'Trades' is an action-packed science fiction noir tale of murder and mystery - with a little romance and a sizable portion of humor mixed in. It's a story of dangerous women and hard men battling the odds in a corrupt system. On the last space station in human space, exiled warrior Rick runs a seedy-but-honest bar one deck above Hell and dreams of earning enough to pay his passage back to his home world. He could manage the fare. The problem is by-passing the multiple death warrants on his head for all the slavers he's killed on all the worlds between his bar and his home world, Den Lupus. Then a lost soul drops a tiny, stolen treasure in his lap. Rick thinks he's got it made - until Emma shows up. She's a woman with a dangerous past and a deadly secret. Together they must find a way to thwart the plans of a vicious slaver and a corrupt cop. Because if they fail, they will lose far more than just their lives.
