    Summary

    “I’m serious, James, this is going to be messy,” Henry starts, but the look in James’s eyes tells him he lost this fight months ago. He lost the fight the moment James first saw Crozier in the lecture hall, and he’s lost it too many times since then to count. “Be careful, at least, will you?”

    But in a lifetime of unsubtleties, the affair with Crozier is James’s worst. Crozier’s hand resting on James’s lower back, there for all to see. Crozier’s fingers nudging gently at James’s shirtcuffs when they stood around at receptions; Crozier’s pale eyes going soft and foolish when James entered the room. Sometimes simply Crozier’s nod, sharp and proprietary, as though to say get upstairs, get in my office, close the door—as if the rest of them were not right there.

    Summary

    Lieutenant Nathaniel Fick of the USS Devil Dog is returning to Earth with the weight of the world on his shoulders: his captain is incompetent, his crew is half in mutiny, and the mission to a distant star may have been more of a failure than anyone could have comprehended. But on the journey back, something in the ship goes terribly wrong—and Nate may have to bear far more than the weight of the world if he's going to keep his men safe.

    Summary

    It was a living, alright, the way Francis saw it, but it wasn’t a life. A life was made of something other than dry red dust and the dregs of a whiskey bottle. When he imagined his grandparents, who he had never met, he thought, That there must have been a life. What they had belonged to them: six children, twelve acres of green Ulster farmland, a body that joined you in slumber and rolled over to touch you in the morning.

    Texas, 1881. Francis Crozier is a cow boss who drinks to drown old hurts. James Fitzjames is a secretive city slicker from New York. Their paths cross at Coppermine Ranch.
