The Democracy is at war with the alien Traanskei Coalition. War hero Colonel Nathan Pretorius has a record of success on dangerous behind-enemy-lines missions, missions that usually leave him in the hospital. Now he’s recruited for a near-impossible assignment that may well leave him dead.

At the cost of many lives, the Democracy has managed to clone and train General Michkag, one of the Traanskei’s master strategists. Colonel Pretorius and a hand-picked team must kidnap the real Michkag if they can, assassinate him if they can’t, but no matter which, put the clone in his place, where he will misdirect the enemy’s forces and funnel vital information to the Democracy.

Against the odds, Pretorius, along with Cyborg Felix Ortega, computer expert Toni Levi, convict and contortionist Sally “Snake” Kowalski, the near-human empath Marlowe, the alien Gzychurlyx, and Madam Methuselah – the Dead Enders – must infiltrate the Fortress in Orion, accomplish their mission, and escape with their lives.

First in the series following the exploits of the most dangerous man in the galaxy—and his clone—from the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author.

On Deluros VIII, the capital of mankind’s sprawling Oligarchy, the most famous killer in the galaxy has rested in DeepSleep for over one hundred years, hoping for a cure for the disease that plagues him. But now it’s time to wake him up.

The governor of Solio II has been assassinated—and the hunt for his murderer is on. Who better for the job than bounty hunter Jefferson Nighthawk, a.k.a. the Widowmaker? No cure has yet been discovered, but Nighthawk can still be of use to the government—as a clone.

After being force-fed the equivalent of decades of living in little more than a month, this version of Nighthawk is set loose on the galaxy,aimed straight at his target. His handlers are counting on Nighthawk’s bloodthirsty nature to guide him—and his inexperience to keep him from seeing the trap he faces. But unlike the original Nighthawk, who chose to kill, this one has a conscience. One that will cause the government’s brilliant plan to backfire when his deadly instincts are unleashed on those who truly deserve his rage . . .

When you’re the most wanted man alive, your legend never dies. An adventure of interplanetary law and disorder from the multiple Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author.

Santiago is a legend, known far and wide across the galaxy as the greatest killer and thief alive. He’s the subject of songs, the faceless wanted poster on the wall, the bogeyman that parents name to scare their children into behaving. And he’s the target of every bounty hunter in the universe.

Sebastian Nightingale Cain has quite the reputation himself. Known as the Songbird, he’s a former revolutionary who has killed hundreds of criminals for the right price. But one has always eluded him: Santiago. Now, Cain has gotten a lead on the elusive outlaw, and it’s too hard to resist. In a race against a rival bounty hunter, Cain’s quest will take him to the far-flung Frontier planets, where he’ll encounter aliens and evangelists, journalists and cyborgs—all of whom have a stake in finding or protecting Santiago. But unraveling the threads of Santiago’s life might get Cain tangled up in something far bigger than he ever imagined . . .
