Summary Edit

From the book jacket
After Quark brokers a too-good-to-be-true trade for gold-pressed latinum, Deep Space 9 is under fire from at least three different alien races, each accusing the others of theft, piracy, and worse. Then angry Klingons get involved, and so do the Ferengi – placing the entire station in the middle of a shooting war that might consume all of them.
