John W. Campbell finalist follows the life of Yuri Kirov, orphaned at four when his colony was destroyed by an alien enemy. Now in his twenties, raised by pirates who found him in an refugee camp, he is a pirate captain, and more...or at least he was until he got caught. Now he's in prison for life, unless someone can find a better use for his skills, and that someone is more ruthless than the pirates Yuri is sent to betray. But are they more ruthless than Yuri? Someone's going to find out the hard way.
