As the shadow of a repressive piety movement spreads across the system's free worlds, the Lady Cassandra and her slaves must flee home. The Dominatrix persuades her loyal clients to smuggle her out of the city where she lives. Exiled to the desert, she contacts Spyder, captain of the spaceship Trouble, who offers her only hope for salvation.
When he rushes to her aid, Spyder's troubles follow him. The delay caused by Lady Cassandra's rescue angers the influential and overdue government official on board and infuriates Creeper, the powerful criminal who owns the cargo in Trouble's hold. Spyder struggles to make up time and meet his commitments, but Creeper accepts no excuses and suffers no delays. He sets a reward for his illicit shipment's return and bounty hunters chase the ship from one end of the system to another. When rumors of the stolen cargo reach the authorities, they join the hunt for Trouble as well.
Pursued both by the law and the lawless, Spyder and his navigator exploit every evasive maneuver and smuggler's trick they know. But, Spyder's troubles find the ship's location with uncanny precision. With a price on his head and his ship, Spyder sets Trouble's course for the only planet in the system out of reach of criminals and cops alike. There one crew member's past catches up to her. When another disappears, Spyder learns the true meaning of trouble.
