Plundering innocent worlds; that is Doc Roberts job, and he is good at it. He was awarded a letter of Marque and a territory to hunt in exchange for his service to the Alliance and of course, a cut of his take.
The Alliance government can’t openly operate in Commonwealth territory without starting another war, so they use privateers like Captain Roberts to destabilize governments and cause unease among the people in hopes that they will ask for Alliance protection.
Cheating and treachery cause Captain Roberts to reevaluate his loyalty. He can live with a little pilfering, but not outright stealing from him by trespassing on his planet. There is only one thing he can do. Teach the Alliance government that there is a price to pay for taking what is not theirs.
The Alliance goes too far when they send an assassin to kill Doc’s wife. Now it is outright war, for Captain Roberts anyway. Now he is both a pirate and a rebel with people on both sides of the border whom either loves him or hates him.
After fighting a duel with one of the Alliance’s promising new captains, torturing him, and leaving him for dead; he has made powerful enemies in the Alliance hegemony. The Alliance military leaders want to make Captain Roberts suffer like he made their captain suffer.
One man can only do so much, and Doc is getting tired. It is time to pass the reins of command to his son. But first, he must crush his son’s dreams and teach him what it means to be an Alliance citizen.
WARNING! This is a stand-alone novel that contains grievous violence some of it extreme and graphically written, nudity, and mild cursing. After all, it is about a pirates life, and that is how they live. There are adult situations, but nothing graphic and no erotica. If any of this offends you, do not buy this book. But if you choose to open its cover and peer inside, I’m sure that you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it,

Jay Toney is a USAF veteran. He served in Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Liberation of Kuaite. He worked as an aircraft mechanic with experience working on the F-4, T-38, F-117A, and the F-16. During his enlistment, he attended college at South Plains College, Huston, Community College, and The Community College of the Air Force. Later he attended Pensacola Jr. College.
Jay lived in several of the United States coastal states: New Jersey, Oklahoma, Northern and Southern California, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, and Alabama. He also lived abroad in Germany, and Saudi Arabia. During his adult life and military service, he visited several other states and countries both in Europe and the middle east.
His first love was anything to do with aircraft. He used to watch planes take off and land at a small airport near his home in San Jose. That experience and love of aircraft led him to join the Air Force.
Jay was always an avid reader, reading anything he could get his hands on including the Encyclopedia Britannica, and he did that in the 2nd grade. In his early teens, he was introduced to Science Fiction and Fantasy. Robert Heinlein quickly became his favorite author.
During his life he read thousands of books by hundreds of authors. He wrote a few short stories but never had any real interest in becoming an author. That is until recently. Jay was gifted as being a good technical writer, and reports like Annual Performance Reports came easy to him. A few years back he decided to try writing fiction. It was a difficult transition, but one he still enjoys. To Jay, writing isn’t just about telling a story. It is about creating a universe of his own that his characters live and die in. In his universe both good and evil war with each other.
Jay is currently working on his eighth novel, The Dark Citadel.
His current interests include science fiction, fantasy, ancient civilizations, computers, anthropology, geology, and ancient monuments and relics.
