Dunbar's World has only its police force to oppose him. Those who rule Cinnabar's so-called ally would rather see Leary fail than succeed in stopping the invasion, and though he again commands the corvette Princess Cecile, on this mission she's no more than a private yacht: her missile tubes are empty.

"Number nine in the national best selling RCN space adventure series. Captain Daniel Leary with his friend-and spy-Officer Adele Mundy are sent to a quiet sector to carry out an easy task: helping the local admiral put down a coup before it takes place. But then the jealous admiral gets rid of them by sending them off on a wild goose chase to a sector where commerce is king and business is carried out by extortion and gunfights. With anarchy and rebellion in the air, a rogue intelligence officer plots the war that will destroy civilization and enlists the help of a brute whom even torturers couldn't stomach. And, of course, it's up to Leary and Mundy to put a stop to the madness.About David Drake's previous RCN novel, What Distant Deeps:"Drake deftly weaves a web of political machinations and intrigue that vividly depicts the costs of war.
