"I don't mind working with the dead, it's the live ones that I'm afraid of."
Forced to leave her peaceful home on Mars Colony after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Brenna Teves moves to Delta Station at the outer edge of the galaxy to live and work with her father who is the station's coroner.
In order to survive and find her place in this fringe community of hardy explorers, space pirates, and classmates that have nicknamed her la muerta- the dead girl, Bren must overcome her anxieties and rely on strengths she didn't realize she had.
As the coroner's daughter Bren finds herself investigating the disappearance of crew members from a science ship found abandoned in the Fringe, only to discover a far more deadly secret. A secret that not only threatens all the lives on Delta Station, but everyone living near the Fringe.
