Moon mining has been suspended for two years pending the outcomes of studies on women who miscarried, hemorrhaged and even killed for no apparent reason after being exposed to it. Lobbyists are trying to get the repeal lifted but Jaguar and her boss Alex can prove that exposure to Artenis compounds caused the women to kill. There are people including one of the administrators of the prison planetoids who are willing to kill Alex and Jaguar to prevent them from making their concerns public.
