A Gaunt's Ghosts story

In the depths of an ancient starship, Scout-Sergeant Mkoll lays traps and plans his defence against a dangerous enemy lurking in the vessel and hunting for him.

It's an insight into one of the most taciturn and mysterious of Gaunt's Ghosts, and a tale showing the levels of preparation, skill and sheer outrageous luck it takes to be renowned as the best scout trooper in a regiment known for its stealth.

Even among the Tanith First, famed for their skill at stealth, one Guardsman stands out for his skill in the arts of concealment and hunting. Scout-Sergeant Mkoll has been at the forefront of many of the greatest victories for Gaunt's Ghosts, and his abilities are unparalleled. Now, aboard the starship Highness Ser Armaduke, Mkoll is put to the ultimate test. He has prepared for the moment, laid traps and established killboxes, ready for the instant the hunt begins. Because something dangerous lurks in the depths of the ancient void craft – and it is coming for Mkoll.
