Captain Exetre was considered a hero once. He was loved by his peers, his superiors and the general population of Achrinom. Now, he is wanted for murder, domestic abuse and many other serious offenses, some of which were committed right in front of very reliable witnesses. The strange thing is, Exetre was never actually present when these crimes occurred. Faced with execution for the crimes of which he stands accused, Exetre is left with no choice -- he must flee from his home planet with his companions if he ever hopes to clear his name. But how does one escape from a planet in the grip of the galaxy's deadliest race? This is the first book in the Captain Exetre series.
