High Crimes: A Pax Aeterna Novel (Pax Aeterna Universe Book 5)


A paranoid, xenophobic alien race wants to start a war.
A valued scientist wants to defect from a totalitarian regime.
A crucial piece of technology needs to be stolen from a summit.
Who you gonna call?
Two words. No One.

That’s right. That’s my name.
The deadliest spy in the entire Terran Armada.
My code name with Armada Intelligence is No One.
But my enemies call me, “Oh No.”
That’s because those are the last words they usually say.
Then they die.

I’m supposed to be pretending to be a traitor.
Working with some Terran Separatists.

They’re deceitful, cunning, and cruel.
They set the Separatists up with a mission.

But now, Armada Intelligence needs me to rescue a defector.
And they need me to steal a crucial piece of technology.
The fate of an entire quadrant of space hangs in the balance.
Intergalactic politics and diplomacy hinges on my success.
Not to mention the threat of genocide if I fail.
All this, and I have to maintain my cover as I save the day.
