Scat (Scat Universe) - Where nobody has gone before

Scat (Book 1: Scat Universe series)
Jim Graham
October 2012

Trained in the Marines special forces, and really, really good at his job, Sebastian Scatkiewicz is not given to deep thinking about either the missions he is sent on or the politics behind them, and that's gotten him into trouble when he's chosen to take matters into his own hands to get the job done.  

He's already once been disciplined and demoted to babysitting geologists.  In Scat's world, the Marines are sent to help find resources, to get in and get out after discovering deposits that countries aren't aware they have, and while a job is a job, the moral bankruptcy underpinning Earth's billions fighting over resources at any cost has insulted his sense of fair play, and when he takes matters into his own hands, another line of work is strongly recommended.
