In the tough interstellar politics of the twenty-third century, Earth and the Syrian Alliance are squarely against Esgarthia and the realms belonging to the Kizil Pact. Terrestrial Intelligence Agent, Lindsay Nash, finds himself pulled off a serious case on Rubanda in order to fill in for a missing agent on T'bolan. Not only that, but he has a 14 day timeline before the Terran Embassy is kicked off the planet. Encountering ambushes and enemy agents at nearly every turn, he also finds himself involved with the lovely tridi star, Tiffany Henrik. In the end, Nash must fight constantly just to keep his head above water, with the fate of Terrestrial Intelligence itself at stake.
