Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Never have the cares of the universe lain so heavily on Flinx’s shoulders, nor the forces against him seemed so invincible. Pursued by a newly revealed sect of doomsday fanatics and hunted by factions inside and outside the Commonwealth, he is expected to single-handedly avert a looming galactic crisis (or bear responsibility for the consequences). Flinx can be forgiven for feeling a slight touch of melancholy.

According to his ship's Al, there's only one solution for what ails Flinx—a vacation. But with an increasing number of enemies chasing him with ever-greater enthusiasm, Flinx must find a getaway shrouded in obscurity. It seems that Jast, a planet smack in the middle of nowhere, is perfect, but trouble can find Flinx anywhere. What he doesn't know is that his vacation paradise is a danger zone of the highest magnitude. And by the time he learns the truth, it may be too late.
