LAPD Detective Sean Hennessey has one person he's repeatedly tried to arrest and bring to justice: his nemesis, Mitchell Yates.
Yates has been in and out of trouble for years, always skating around the edges of LA’s underbelly; however, Sean can never pin anything on him.
But one night all of that changes.
Caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, instead of arresting Yates, Sean is rescued by him and taken to Yates’ home—a satellite high above Earth. There, Sean discovers a world he thought possible only in Science Fiction.
Everything he believed he knew about Yates is turned upside down, and Sean must make a decision: to remain with the LAPD or join Yates and work toward intergalactic peace.
“You think you can bait me?” Sean walked around to an open area in the middle of the room. “I’ve been swatting punks like you since before you were born. Bring it on!”
The next moment, Jimmy leaped at him and they were into it. Fists flew. Furniture was knocked over. Sean managed to duck Jimmy’s fist and landed a solid right to his stomach. Jimmy pulled back, startled, and Sean couldn’t help but grin. Taking that smirk off Jimmy’s face had felt so good. Jimmy was quick on his feet though, and caught Sean with a right to the jaw. All the humor of the situation vanished as Sean tackled him, taking Jimmy down, overturning a table and its contents in the process. In a matter of moments, Sean had him on his knees in a headlock he couldn’t get out of. Jimmy wiggled, struggled, cursed a blue streak, and threatened, but he couldn’t budge the hold Sean had on him.
“Maybe I should have told you that I was captain of the wrestling team in college, and lettered in boxing. But then again, punks like you always seem to think that a few years on a guy means he’s ready to be put out to pasture.” Sean chuckled. “Surprise,” he hissed close to Jimmy’s ear as he tightened his grip.
Tussling on the floor, Sean didn’t notice the door open and Yana walk in. “What the... what the hell is going on here?” Yana yelled.
Sean released the headlock he had on Jimmy and they got to their feet. Jimmy pulled free and ran to Yana’s side.
“Thank God you got here. He attacked me, Yana!” Jimmy was red-faced and gasping for air. “I came by to invite the two of you to dinner and he attacked me. He’s crazy!
