(The third book in the Descent series)
A novel by

With the galaxy exploding all around him and humanity itself in jeopardy, Pyro-jockey Ben St.John knows who the real enemy is-the traitor who cost Ben his wife and his future; the megalomaniac who sent him off to die and reduced him to a galactic renegade with no allies except a handful of star-wanderers and misfits; the undisputed power behind the most awesome corporate entity in the solar system.and beyond: his former employer, Samuel Dravis of the Post Terran Mining Corporation.

Dravis doesn't want much. Only the universe and its vast, inexhaustible wealth. And now he's taking no prisoners-unleashing a terrible new generation of weaponry and viruses; letting loose an unstoppable private army of drones dedicated to doing his dark bidding; and mastering an indefensible system of mind control that will make his defeat all but impossible. In other words, taking Dravis down is the perfect job for Ben St. John, who wants his foe's head and has absolutely nothing left to lose. From the lethal labyrinths of Mars' Red Acropolis Research Facility to the unseen terrors of the Sirius System, Ben's ready to plow through all of his enemy's impregnable defenses-just to prove to Dravis that old Marines don't fade away.they keep getting in your face!
