Resourceful¸ ruthless¸ beautiful¸ apparently without fear¸ Scout Lieutenant Cassie Suthorn of Camacho's Caballeros is as consummately lethal as the giant BattleMechs she lives to hunt. Only one other person in the freewheeling mercenary regiment has a hint of the demons which drive her.
When the Caballeros sign on to guard Coordinator Theodore Kurita's corporate-mogul cousin in the heart of the Draconis Combine¸ they think they've got the perfect gig: low risk and high pay. Cassie alone suspects that danger waits among the looming bronze towers of Hachiman-and when the yakuza and the dread ISF form a devil's alliance to bring down Chandrasekhar Kurita¸ only Cassie's unique skills can save her regiment.
All she has to do is confront her darkest nightmares.
