The Big Sling

Authored by Elizabeth Chater

On a routine flight from Earth to Mars, Captain Mark Rand discovers an attempt to smuggle drugged women in a cargo container. He and the ship's Factor are brought before the Controller. Soon after, the Factor winds up dead-and Captain Rand is falsely accused. But Captain Rand knows exactly who killed the Factor. It is the same man who poisoned his brother, sending him into a coma. It's the yellowed-eyed mutant, the Controller of Inter-Planetary Enterprises, the greedy bastard who owns most of the solar system and won't stop until he owns it all. His name is Victor Holm, and he's the reason why revenge burns inside Captain Rand's heart. He's also the man who's about to find out why Captain Rand is nicknamed "Killer."
