Due Diligence by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller
When the lady proposes, the pilot disposes. . .
Abandoned on a strange port by a scam gone bad, his license to pilot rescinded, and his pockets very much to let, Fer Gun pen’Uldra was teetering between trouble, more trouble, and bad trouble. Cornered in a cheap bar by a too-knowledgeable stranger with an unlikely offer, Fer Gun realizes that having no money and no license might be the least of his troubles.
And that the lady’s dangerous proposal was starting to look like his only chance.
