Fool's Gold (A Mercenary Warfare Short Story)

Omar Freeborn doesn’t expect too much out of life. A warm bed and not getting knifed is usually enough for him. He’s thrown a curve when his sister not only steals his bed, but involves him in her business deal gone wrong.

All he can do is dig in and pull off some trading mastery. Maybe, if he’s lucky, he won’t get knifed in the process.
