Lawmen : Rook and Berenger - Childhood's End
Deep in the frontier of a galactic empire, on the edges of explored space, a body is found near a remote settlement on an alien world.
The body of a child.
The victim isn't from the settlement, her cause of death is suspicious, and where she came from is a complete mystery. How did this little girl get to this planet light-years away from civilization, and how did she die?
To solve this baffling case, the local settlers call upon the Galactic Rangers, a newly formed group of roving lawmen who are tasked with bringing law and order to the Frontier - an area of rapid expansion and colonization which is typically lawless.
The two newest Galactic Rangers - Deckland "Rook" Prescott and Braxxon Berenger - are assigned the case. Rook is fresh out of the academy and does things strictly by the book. Berenger is a rough-and-tumble frontiersman who does things his own way. The two men don't like each other, and they certainly don't get along. But they agree to try to work together to investigate the death of this mysterious child.
As their investigation deepens, they discover that this case is about more than just the death of a child. The two Rangers stumble upon a conspiracy which could shake the core of the galactic empire they serve, and solving this murder could cost them their own lives.
With no one left to rely on but each other, can these two Rangers set aside their differences long enough to get justice for the dead child? Can they survive the dangers of bringing this devious conspiracy to light? Do they have what it takes to be the one thing this chaotic area of frontier space needs the most: true Lawmen?
Lawmen: Rook and Berenger - Childhood's End, is the first book in the Galactic Ranger Chronicles series. If you're a fan of mysteries, westerns, and science fiction adventure, this is not a story to be missed!
