When you’re running from an interstellar crime lord, what better place could you find to hide than a maximum-security prison orbiting a black hole? Emily Van Lars, a.k.a The Engineer, the galaxy’s most famous thief, thought The Trench was the perfect hideaway after Kaiser Turpin murdered her partner when she refused to take his proffered contract.
With her cover blown and Turpin threatening to take apart her life - one friend or former lover at a time - Emily is forced to escape prison and race across space in the company of a mercenary who thinks a bullet will solve every problem. Adding a psychopath and a cypher to her motley crew wasn’t the best plan she ever made, but desperation forces hard choices. She would need every ally she could muster to beat Turpin at his own game and take on The Venusian Job.

Fun Space Heist!
Ezekiel! What a great fast-paced space heist. Lots of twists. I really want to know the full story about the apple now! Very interesting characters who are unexpectedly thrown together and make an unlikely, but oh so entertaining, team. McFadden wastes no time dropping us into the thick of things and does a great job at teasing just enough backstory to pique your curiosity while giving you just what you need to know. I'm so looking forward to the next book. And having the two narrators was a great addition to the book. I definitely recommend this if you're looking for a fun read/listen.
