Someone sent three fully armed ships to High Tortuga to back the slave-owners running the mines, and Barnabas and Shinigami are determined to find out who. And take them down. As they look deeper, however, theyll find traces of an organization that controls whole mercenary syndicates, industries, and even governments: the Yennai Corporation. They have plans for this sector of space, and they are not about to let humans interfere. So theyre going to kill Barnabas, and theyre going to make an example of the mine workers he freed. After all, whos going to stop them? Barnabas is one human in one ship. Theyre sure they can take him out.
