As an adamant opponent of Terran settlement on the planet Jekh, Owen McGarry made his family name synonymous with "traitor" on Earth. Lobbyists standing to profit from off-world colonization hinted that the Jekhans were preparing to declare war. Nearly twenty years after Owen's supposed death, his granddaughter Courtney wants to learn the truth--even if she has to travel to the far-flung colony to do it.
