Fallen Flag is on the road! Well, tracks, technically. Trabajo has sent a train on the first trading mission of the year. It will travel hundreds of miles to distant enclaves, trading food for technology and other supplies. Fallen Flag has signed on to protect the train during the journey but the real Bounty is in finding jobs at each enclave they visit. Their first job seems simple enough: find an engineer with a particular skill set. However, no job is as simple as it seems. To complete it, the crew will face a very hard choice.

Months after the crime that brought a group of corporate agents together, a new lead suddenly resurfaces to bring them together again. This will also bring a new agent to the group, who seems to share the same dark moment from the past as the others. Only this lead will take them to the dark underworld of Mars’ capitol city, and make them deal with an insane poison master. And maybe draw closer to the mysterious terrorist from their past.

Instead of taking a contract, Fallen Flag decides to try for a Score. They’ve heard of a cache of cargo drones that would fetch a high price in the market, so they head out to grab them. Of course, there’s a reason why no one else has retrieved the drones yet. A sinister foe unlike any they’ve faced before between them and their goal. Before they know it, the team is in the crosshairs.
