Abstract:

A hero without peer or scruples, Sam Gunn has a nose for trouble, money, and women - though not necessarily in that order. A man with the ego (and stature) of Napoleon, the business acumen of P.T. Barnum, and the raging hormones of a teenage boy, Sam is the finest astronaut NASA ever trained ... and dumped. But more than money, more than women, Sam Gunn loves justice. (And he really does love money and women.) Whether he's suing the Pope, helping twin sisters entangled in the "virtual sex" trade, or on trial for his life on charges of interplanetary genocide, you can be sure of one thing: this is one space jockey who'll meet every challenge with a smile on his lips, an ace up his sleeve ... and a weapon in his pocket.
