Greta van der Rol

Author Greta van der Rolabout this book: Starheart is a murder, a mystery, a thriller, an action-adventure and a smackerel of romance, all in one fast-paced, action-packed space opera package.

Come and meet Jess, a beautiful single mother who thinks she's well in control of her life until her small freighter is stopped by Admiral Hudson's Confederacy battle cruiser, in search of smuggled goods. Her contraband isn't discovered, but she's curious to know why there's suddenly a military presence in this out of the way backwater of a planet.

Hudson's questions open old wounds. Jess's husband was killed in a botched raid and suddenly Jess, along with her partner, Santh, start to wonder if the death really was accidental. Linking a series of events with the mining platform parked next to the gas giant, Tabora, they set out to discover what really happened.

For his part, Hudson is also interested in Tabora. Somehow, the rare and beautiful jewels called starhearts are being found in the Confederacy. They are only mined by the alien Ptorix, who prize them. Is there some trafficking happening between the Ptorix and Humans? If so, what is exchanged, and how?

Soon, both Hudson and Jess find themselves targets, and Santh, working undercover on Tabora, has his own battles.

While Jess and Santh are both at risk of losing their lives, Hudson's challenge is different. If he makes the wrong move, not only will he lose his commission and his career, he risks unleashing inter-species war with the Ptorix. His growing relationship with Jess adds a level of complexity to his moral dilemma.
