       Additional Information  
     
      Orphans are the dregs of society. Even as adults, they are considered morally deviant, social outcasts who are unfit for education or employment. Zeus Malone is the first orphan accepted to Officer's Training School, an elite military academy. Zeus arrives branded with the marks of a brutal crime network. He must conceal the truth.
    Survival is his greatest asset. How is a street-smart, knife-throwing, starving orphan doing advanced physics and cutting-edge computer science? What are his network connections and why do they want him to infiltrate the Corps?

    Commander Cheryl Yoggi's career and family are on the line. She and The United Corps are forced to accept the orphan cadet due to media pressure. Billions in public funding are at stake. Yoggi is ordered to dispose of the traitorous orphan without the Corps receiving any additional negative press.

    Yoggi must deal with spy infiltration, a suicide mission, murder, and a daring rescue of abused children. Is she willing to sacrifice one of her subordinates to save the life of her daughter? She and her staff tackle these complex situations using guts rather than guns, humor rather than hostility, and determination rather than destruction.
