(The second book in the Old Ironsides series)
A novel by

"Centuries after three quarters of the human population on earth fell victim to a savage plague, a new enemy rises to threaten the existence of humanity. A civilization divided by those still fully human, those part machine and those who are both dead and alive at the same time, what it means to be truly human has already been long forgotten.

Surviving in a world four hundred years in the future that is as strange as it is dangerous, Detective Nathan Ironside is assigned the appeal case of a former prison officer incarcerated for homicide in a hellish prison in orbit around Saturn called Tethys Gaol. In an attempt to hide his own sorrows Nathan digs deep into the officer's desperate claims of innocence, and swiftly finds himself embroiled in a major conspiracy. But even trapped aboard a lawless prison ship he faces only half the danger of his partner Lieutenant Foxx, aboard the fleet's flagship Titan; for mankind has made "first contact" with an alien species, and it's nothing like anybody expected.

Trapped aboard the gaol, Nathan must survive the most violent prison riot in humanity's history and solve the case while hoping that Lieutenant Foxx and the fleet can evade a ruthless killing machine and finally come to his rescue... "
