    A quest for revenge, Telllurian marauders and foiling a drug ring. Just another day for Lanyon, interplanetary gun-for-hire.



    “Earthman, don’t move even a little, or I will shoot you. Drop your weapon.”

    Lanyon dropped his rator and stood still. A rough hand on his back pushed him toward Jetsut’s door. He turned his head and saw the gatekeeper from downstairs holding a pistol on him. The gatekeeper kicked the rator the length of the hallway, and Lanyon watched it disappear into a crevice at the base of the left wall.

    The gatekeeper knocked on Jetsut’s door. “Let’s see if you’re the one.”

    Jetsut opened the door. “Bring him in. You are Lanyon, I believe. Yes, I recognize you. Let me have it.” He took the pistol from the gatekeeper. To the woman he had brought into the apartment he said, “Go back to the bar. If I want you, I’ll find you there. You go back outside.”

    The gatekeeper and the woman left.

    Lanyon looked the apartment over quickly. Along with a bed in the living room, there was a table and two chairs tucked into a corner. The luxury suite. On the table sat the bottle of vodgin from the bar, half empty, and two nearly full glasses of red, smoking liquor.

    Jetsut grabbed the nearest chair and moved it back from the table toward the center of the room. “Sit,” he ordered and took the other chair against the wall. “Didn’t you think I knew an Earthman was looking for me? Didn’t you think any Earthman who showed up in this part of the city would be suspect? Not very smart, are you?”

    “Not very. Where’s Pentry?”

    “Never mind Pentry. I’m sure he’d like to be here, but he’s busy. No, wait. I’ll let him know.” Jetsut took out his pocketmailer and, gaze darting down at the pocketmailer then back up at Lanyon, he sent a message. “I told him I caught you with another Malcosian woman. You don’t learn, do you?”

    “Are you going to hurt the woman I was with?”

    “Of course not. She’s earning planetcredits dealing with scum like you. Your girlfriend, what was her name? Ah, yes. Honna. She chose to associate with you. Disgusting, don’t you think? Ah, a reply.”

    Jetsut’s gaze darted up and down again. He chuckled. “Pentry wants me to tell you goodbye, but only after I remind you how much we enjoyed Honna’s company…”

    Lanyon sprang from his chair and dove forward
