Volume 4 in the Alcantaran series.
Elevin Shi couldn’t see what was so important about Chartura, another backward planet on a far galaxy. Then he found out that they had gone from sailing ships to spaceships in ten years with engines that were better than many modern craft. How did that happen? Trouble within the Charter Alliance Intelligence Service hindered the investigation and threatened his life while Galactic war loomed.
Would there be enough time for his team to discover who had masterminded this and what their intentions were? How could they stop this disaster without help from above?
