Solomon St. James is an agent with the Universal Galactic Cooperative who, while conducting a covert investigation within the Kaldovan Empire, is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Sentenced to life in prison, Solomon finds that his jailer has a different view of what defines a prison.
Dropped naked and unarmed into the most inhospitable region of an uninhabited, uncharted, and unclassified planet, Solomon’s days could be numbered. Survival isn’t easy among the stacks; a forest of tall, skyscraper-like, pillars of stone where the choice of food or water is separated by long, treacherous climbs.
To complete his investigation and redeem his name, Solomon must first survive the hostile creatures that prowl the equally hostile terrain while finding a way to escape his planetary prison.
