Publisher's Summary


DOCTOR APHRA’s race across an alien city continues, pursued by innumerable enemies – not least the EMPIRE’S villainous propaganda division.
But with the timer ticking down on the bomb in her throat, the truest horror might come from some unscheduled soul-searching.
Could it be that her psychotic droid companion TRIPLE-ZERO is the closest thing she has (or deserves) to a true soulmate?

Part V

Doctor Aphra is on the run! Implanted with a proximity bomb, she’s forced to stay close to her nemesis, Triple-Zero, or they will both face an explosive death. The two must travel to the only specialist on Milvayne who can remove the bombs before the timer runs out!

It’s all part of a grand experiment by Doctor Cornelius Evazan, who has watched their every move from a live feed through Triple-Zero’s eyes while broadcasting it to all the residents of Milvayne. With the whole planet watching, Aphra and Triple-Zero worked together to escape many enemies and in the process, gained the favor of the viewers.

Not every viewer was rooting for the escapees. The shadowy agents of Imperial Propaganda watched as Aphra’s shenanigans sowed the seeds of dissent against Imperial law. Its mysterious leader decided to nip the Rebellion in the bud — with an orbital strike.
