Working as a consultant on a new version of Convict Challenge, a life or death show beamed live around the galaxy, Brell must pit her wits against others, including a psychotic criminal also intent on finding the Locardum. She is assisted in her search by a robot who enjoys watching pirate drama shows.
Believing one of the challengers on the show, unknowingly holds key evidence to the location of the ore, Brell must overcome a major problem.
If the convict dies during the show, their information dies with them.
