Beck Garrison lives on a seastead - an archipelago of constructed
platforms and old cruise ships, assembled by libertarian separatists a
generation ago. She's grown up comfortable and sheltered, but starts
doing odd jobs for pocket money.
To her surprise, she finds that she's the only detective that a debt
slave can afford to hire to track down the woman's missing
sister. When she tackles this investigation, she learns things about
life on the other side of the waterline - not to mention about herself
and her father - that she did not expect. And she finds out that some
people will stop at nothing to protect their secrets . . .
