Blue Shift by Jane O'Reilly
2187. Earth is cold, dead and divided. The rich hide away while the rest will do anything to survive.
Humanity have only one hope: crossing hostile alien territory to reach a habitable planet. (It’s lucky that for some, fighting their way through space is just a way of life . . .)
Jinnifer Blue is on the run. An expert pilot, she apprehends criminals on behalf of the government and keeps her illegal genetic modifications a closely guarded secret. But when a particularly dangerous job goes south, Jinn is left stranded on a prison ship with one of the most ruthless criminals in the galaxy.
Now she must decide if she can trust her co-prisoner – because once they discover what the prison ship is hiding, she definitely can’t trust anyone else . . .
