Illegal

By Pete Aldin & Kevin Ikenberry

Short stories, Sci-Fi | eBook


Jenni Harcourt is on the run. She wants out of the People’s Asteroid Territories. But who is she? And why is she so eager to leave the wealthiest place in space? Inspector Keung Yeng is on a mission to discover the identity of the fugitive. His search takes him from the filth of Madame Zheva’s dive bar to the squalid Library District, a seedy place filled with black markets and bordellos under Wei Chu’s control. Wei Chu and Keung Yeng fought and failed together in Fiji. The Anzacs captured Yeng but Chu managed to negotiate his freedom. This betrayal still burns in Yeng’s mind. And now he must confront the one person he has spent so long avoiding. The question is: what does he want with Jenni Harcourt? Espionage? Terrorism? Or worse? Pete Aldin and Kevin Ikenberry craft a masterful tale about human trafficking in space, asteroid colonization, and being between a rock and a hard place. Illegal is a vivid vision of a future where fighting for control over one’s own life is a daily occurrence. But even in the darkest corners of society, a ray of light still shines through. This story about the good and bad of human nature is one you won’t soon forget.
