Malo Kemp, independent trader, is slumped in a bar in the canal district of the Northern Settlement. He's roused by a call from a mysterious client. Malo decides to sober up and takes the job of carrying some very precious cargo across the vast hostility of space. His companion for the trip is the attractive and enigmatic Miranda, who seems to know much more about this job than he does. Malo buries his doubts, thinks about the pay off, and uses the ubiquitous jump gates to hop across the galaxy trade routes, thinking that he knows what he's doing.

Just before the journey ends the past catches up with him, and he finds that neither Miranda or her precious cargo are quite what they seem. As things fall apart around him Malo finds that this deal will force him look at himself, and make a choice.
