Humanity has become the victim of mass overpopulation and the line between middle class and poverty no longer exists. Whit Carmichael has accepted a high-risk security job that requires off-world travel using Slipstream technology in the hope of rising out of his situation. The risk of injury or death is extreme but the danger is sweetened by Whit’s dream of a better life. When Whit and his team are sent to space station Infini to confront an unidentifiable enemy, only Whit survives. An elite squad of ‘Search and Rescue’ specialists are sent in to find him and to stop whatever caused the death of his crew from returning to earth.
