The planet Llannonn is known for its courtesy, but when Bel Schuster goes off-limits during shore leave she uncovers the iron fist inside that velvet glove.

Gangster aliens, local law enforcement and highly placed political espionage agents all get into the act, and a tangle of misunderstanding, miscommunication and mistaken identity land Bel in court, facing what passes for a legal system on Llannonn.
