Sam is convinced she has what it takes to become a fighter pilot... to hunt down and destroy the enemy in deep space.
Instead she's assigned to Tactical Operations training. It's vital work, but it's still a desk job, far from the front line.
Then, terrible news: Sam's older brother is killed in combat.
Sam is given leave to attend his memorial service, but she's barely boarded the transport when the enemy launches a surprise attack, striking far behind friendly lines to take the entire sector.
Desperately short of pilots, the transport's captain asks Sam to step up.
Now, at last, she has the chance to prove herself.
But will that chance end in death... or glory?
The Secret War: Raiders is a complete, standalone novel. It does not end on a cliffhanger.
