by David Bridger
Kath Preston and Jen Stenberg are damage control engineers in the generation starship Romeo,582 years into its 800-year journey from frozen Earth to humanity's hopeful future on planet Nirvana. When they were schoolgirl best friends, Romeo's population was doubled to 10,000 by taking on survivors from its stricken sister ship Juliet in the disaster that claimed the life of Kath's hero father Peter.
On Christmas Eve seventeen years later, in the space of a single 24-hour duty while the people of Romeo are preparing to enjoy the holiday, can Kath and Jen step into Peter's hero shoes when the actions of a murderous rogue crewman and the lurking ghost of the Juliet conspire to threaten Romeo's safety and the lives of those they love?
