Belvaille has cemented its place as the most important system in the galaxy and Hank is working as an official Factotum, negotiating deals between gangs and noblemen under the watchful eye of the Arch Minister. When his ever-capable butler, Cliston, is approached to become the General Manager of a Super Class glocken team, Hank is hired not only as protection, but as a player. Hank finds himself thrown into the most grueling bloodsport in the galaxy and tasked with finding out how and why players are being abducted. The friendly rivalries turn into full-scale conflict, and Hank unravels a far more insidious plot than the fixing of gambling results. In the process, Hank learns a lot about his history that he never even dreamed had existed. Many of Hank´s friends and enemies return in this action-packed and humorous take on the professional sporting world.

I had to cope with the shock that he was once young and then narrate the horror of my own childhood behavior.”Neil Haverson explained: ´´When I write I try to use words that will paint a picture in the reader’s imagination. Words and phrases that I hope will convey mood and humor. It was fascinating to hear them spoken aloud and see how Nick interpreted them. He got the message spot on.
