*Northern Soul's Best Reads of 2014* Humans have colonised the Orbit, branching out from an overpopulated and war-torn Earth to establish cities on the Moon and in space. Policed by The Service, this is a whole new world of service and Spacers where life is hard and comes at a price.
Kaleb Hugo is a former Service commander, publicly disgraced and dismissed for disobeying orders to save lives, but secretly reassigned as captain of the Zero: A government-funded black ops privateer ship on the edge of Orbit law. The ship is publicly disavowed but privately essential to the Service, existing solely to mix with pirates, terrorists and criminals and to serve the establishment's underground agenda.
With his commander, Ezekiel Webb, and crew, Hugo, at first a reluctant soldier in his new role, will uncover a vast conspiracy which will threaten the very Orbit itself and drive it to all-out civil war. As they race against time to avert catastrophe, what will become of the Zero and her crew?
"Collyer's Zero is a fun, fast ride through hyperspace. Equal parts James Bond and Firefly, Collyer has created a future that is as frightening as it is entertaining. Join the crew and buckle up."
