The Hashoone siblings might be crew members together aboard the Shadow Comet, but only one of them can be the next captain. So when the Hashoones find themselves in the midst of a dangerous conspiracy, each sibling is desperate to prove his or her worth. The only trouble is if they don't work together, none of them may make it out alive.

It's been a tough year for Tycho Hashoone and his family. Hostilities between the Jovian Union and Earth have reached a boiling point. The privateering business hasn't exactly been booming. And the ongoing contest for the captain's seat of the Shadow Comet has the three Hashoone siblings perpetually on edge. Then the Hashoones intercept a ship --- one with a long-dead crew, its final mission a warning to all who seek their fortunes in space. Following clues from the mysterious ship, they embark on a hunt for the long-lost treasure of the Iris. But in his quest for the Iris cache, Tycho is going to dig up much more than he bargained for. Because like old pirate treasure, family secrets never stay buried for long.

For Tycho Hashoone and his family, space privateering is more than a business --- it’s a way of life. Now that the Jovian Union needs their help more than ever, their way of life is about to get a lot more complicated. Earth is preparing to mount an arms race. Meanwhile, the Ice Wolves of Saturn are still on the offensive, and their ruthless tactics make them look like the pirates of old. Trapped between two formidable foes, the Jovian Union has asked for all hands on deck --- and that includes the Hashoones and the Shadow Comet. With so many players vying for power, Tycho will have to decide once and for all where his allegiances lie. Because the day when his mother will step down as ship captain is approaching fast --- and the fate of much more than the Shadow Comet hangs in the balance.
