"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Aart's impulsive compulsion to help the "little-guy" or anyone getting a bad deal, cause him to act so impulsively he winds up entering into a Contract to harvest an extraordinary daily quota of Locusts. Anyone not meeting their Quota for one day has two days added to their Contract Term. In addition, unsanctioned fights (No RULES) are conducted for the profit of the "Overseers" who pick anyone they wish to be "sent-to-the-Shed" where these fights take place. Unfortunately, if they are a better-than-average fighter they become crowd favorites and get to remain in the "Shed" for extensive periods of time and beatings. Time spent in-the-Shed" is not counted towards your Contract period and, when you're beaten to the point you're no longer considered a worthy opponent, you are returned to the Fields to continue your Harvesting Contract. Obviously, Aart winds up in-the-Shed and when he barely survives and is returned to the Harvesting he learns a "few bumps and bruises" is no reason to fail to meet the daily quota.
What terrible thing did Aart do to find himself in this terrible situation? He Volunteered thinking this would be the best way to gain information about a missing person he's hired to find who disappeared from her own Harvesting contract. None of the people he meets on the work crew he's assigned to are willing to help or even share any information he's sure they have. Everyone is so terrorized of the overseers and the Shed they're unwilling to even consider they could be helping themselves.
It's not Nova who comes to help Aart but it is a more experienced Bounty Hunter whom he learns has just failed her fourth attempt to join the Jagged-Maw. She manages to get onto the Plantation Planet and is about to help Aart when they're both discovered by the Overseers and their attempt to disclose the illegal activities in the Shed can't find any proof of wrong-doing. Now would be a really good time for Nova to show-up but, it's not to be.
