Jack Wilgress loves his independence, and he hates debts, of any kind. Even to his friends. But what if one is indebted against their will? What does one do if the only way to erase a debt is to accept another debt…with one’s rivals? And worse, canceling the debt will require invading one of Earth’s most prized military bases on Phobos: Overwatch. Life’s been relatively fun, and one-up’ing his former special forces trainer who’s been given command of the base, would be a good time. However getting involved with a ‘bad mood’ Earther military, and possibly dragged into a larger system-wide conflict, is not exactly Jack’s idea of a good long-term career.
Against the backdrop of a fractured humanity far along the path to war, Jack Wilgress will have to face an old Earther nemesis if he wants to preserve his Maverick ‘family’. One is already good as gone, and he will be damned if he loses another. But even if it means loses a piece of his priceless freedom…?
