Synopsis

If you were framed for murder, would you run, or would you fight?

On frosted Europa, Davin thought he had a quiet gig going for his veteran crew. When an escort mission goes wrong and leaves the wrong bodies behind, the Wild Nines are pegged as the culprits. Now Davin has to fight to clear his name, and get revenge on the ones that wanted to use him.

If you like fast-paced action, wise-cracking characters, and devious villains, you'll love Wild Nines, the first book in the Mercenaries Trilogy.
