Jettisoned

(2014)
A Novella by

 
Jettisoned - a new and original Sci-Fi novella (26,300 words, about 90 minutes reading time) by Sam Barone.
The ore freighter The Lady Drake is inbound from Jupiter's moon, Io, returning to earth. Third Officer and navigator Peter Tosco, a last minute addition to the crew, soon realizes that this passage is unlike any other.
The crew of The Lady Drake is violent and undisciplined. Its ruthless and brutal captain, Camenson, is even worse. Peter is ordered to perform an EVA inspection of the hull, prior to a mid-course correction. Peter soon finds himself in danger and running out of air, yet unable to return to The Lady Drake. If he is to survive, Peter must find a different solution. But the Captain is jettisoning the crew, and an even more certain death awaits Peter inside.
Peter discovers that something is hidden within the ship's cargo hold, something not on the cargo manifest. Whatever it is, Captain Camenson and his cronies are after it, and willing to murder anyone who gets in their way.
More than Peter's life is at stake. He also needs to rescue Linda Grayson, the ship's Med-Tech. She, too, is facing termination, but not before Captain Camenson and his crew put her through a different kind of hell. To stay alive, Peter and Linda must decipher the mysterious cargo before it's too late.
