Joktar was running for his life, and he didn't even know why . . .
After growing up orphaned in the spaceman's helltown of Interstellar New York, Joktar was adept at dodging the law, but he knew of no special reason why all the police forces of the civilized galaxy should suddenly concentrate on him. All he knew was that he had to run--and run he did, out of the Solar System and straight across the galaxy to the aptly named Constellation of the Wolf. In the freezing hell that was the Wolf world Fenris, he turned and awaited his hunters.
Great young adult novel by the author of the Witch World series.
