Life is good again for Lenny June, legal attaché to the Terran delegation on the developing planet of Mayam. After all, he’s bested his scheming former boss the ambassador, ditched an intergalactic cartel’s deadly hit woman out in the forbidden wastelands, and gotten away with the priceless relic they were all after: the ancient head of a dead god. But then… who is trying to kill him? Why did the diplomatic core decide not to promote him, and instead, send out a new ambassador… with Lenny’s fiancée? And could it be that head isn’t actually as dead as he thought?
