The trail leads to the planet Rimrock and the massive prison complex of Golgotha.

Can she escape the prison confines and deliver a warning before it’s too late?

Rimrider Adventures Book 2
New friendships forged, old enemies emerge, and Jane Benedict’s life takes an unexpected turn.
The celebration of the victory at Golgotha has barely ended. The Freetrader Council tasks Jane to find the leewits and convince them to build an alliance with the colonists to destroy United Earth Corporation’s hold over Rimrock. With Gem at her side, Jane makes the difficult journey to their secret lair only to discover hidden dangers and a less-than-warm homecoming for Gem. Creating a pact with the alien race will be trickier than expected.
With the leewit alliance temporarily on hold, duty summons Jane and Gem back to the Solar Vortex. Jaden Solis has stepped up harassment of the colonists, forcing the Freetrader fleet to stay on the run from UEC cruisers. To combat the growing threat Mac, now a captain with the rangers, accepts a risky assignment near Golgotha. A restless Jane searches for a new challenge and is offered an apprenticeship in stellar navigation. Will she take it? After all, everyone knows to navigate a spaceship, insanity is a job requirement.
Battling both perils in deep space and a horrific plot to crush the colonial rebellion on Rimrock, Jane and her friends dive into new adventures on the galactic rim.

With the aid of a mysterious white cat and a mystical mirror, Katherine and Jake join forces to solve a murder. Can they stop a killer from claiming the next victim or will their investigation only lead them six feet under?
