Did you hear the one about the billionaire, thief, and sex robot who walked into a bar?
A rogue AI in a miniskirt is walking around the lunar colony blackmailing and killing people, forcing Kate Devana, a retired Marine and Space Force Guardian, to come out of semi-retirement.
She returns to find it’s become the new Wild West. The powers that be don’t like her much because the last time she was there, she blew the place up. But the colony’s not big enough for all of them.
Can Kate stop the rogue AI without nuking the place like last time? Then again, with so much billionaire vanity in one place, maybe she should do the solar system a favor.

"Werne's storytelling technique ... deftly balances interstellar politics with an amalgam of end-to-end action and Sherlock Holmes-styled sleuthing. The conversations between the characters are the icing on the cake as Werne displays an innate ability to extract comedic instances from even the most serious-sounding situation." - Readers Favorite
