A bomb strapped to one of Altor’s most prominent businessmen explodes – a signature of the Snake, an alien assassin who the Space Police have never been able to capture. One of them who has tried, Officer Jane Castle, saw the attempt to corner the Snake turn into tragedy. Another survivor of that incident, detective Gray, is called in to help deal with the problem. After the Snake’s next ransom demand is called in, Brogan and Haldane are dispatched to the target – an unmanned refinery vessel – only to find that it’s already been turned into an orbiting bomb that they can’t escape without detonating. Their only choice is to defuse the bomb from inside… but unknown to them, someone at the Space Precinct is working against them.
