GET THE BRANDY TO BAZZ . . .That's all Paymaster Stenstrom, the Lord of Belmont-South Tyrol, has to do and the old Warbird Seeker is his. He has dreamed of captaining a Fleet ship his entire life. Little does Paymaster Stenstrom realize that he is in the grip of an old Vendetta and the short trip to Bazz might very well be his last. Faced with a dead ship and a lost crew, Paymaster Stenstrom finds help in the strangest places: the jail-jockey Marine and the milquetoast young man from the Admiral's office, and, though he just became acquainted with these two strangers, he discovers they have been influencing each other's lives for a very long time. Something sinister hovers over Paymaster Stenstrom and his two new friends, something they are only now becoming aware of. Is the Seeker about to become just another ship that set sail from safe shores never to be heard from again? Sands of the Solar Empire and Against the Druries, told as they were meant to be told, as one book with a brand new look. In this tale of vile evil and hopeless terror, can new friendship and new love conquer all?
