(IBList user synopsis):
When Donald Slade's father died, he felt that he had to go back to his homeworld of Tethys to take up the dukedom that he had abandoned when he took up the mercenary life.
But Mad Dog Slade had been a Slammer and once a Slammer, always a Slammer, so when Hammer gets a report that Slade hadn't made it back, he sent Slade's friend, Danny Prichard, after him. But Slade had been a Slammer and nothing would get between him and the home he desired to see once more.
And peace? Well, he was a Slammer, so peace would come from the barrel of a powergun if no other way...
