Prince Roger MacClintock was an heir to the galaxy's Throne of Man-and a self-obsessed spoiled young brat-until he and the Royal Marines sent to protect him were stranded on Marduk with only their feet to get them half way around the entire planet. So far, they've crossed a continent, crossed a sea full of ship-eating monsters, taken over an enemy spaceport, and hijacked a starship. But they're not home-free yet, because home is no longer free. In Roger's absence, a palace coup by enemies of the MacClintock family has seized control of the Empire. His mother the Empress is a captive in the palace and even in her own body, drugged so that her will is not her own. Roger's bother, the heir to the throne, is dead. And Roger himself has been branded an outlaw and traitor. Roger and his faithful band of human marines and native alien warriors have beaten the barbarian planet Marduk, and now they must re-conquer an interstellar empire. But they aren't about to give up, and with the help of those on the throne planet who are still loyal to the Empress they will infiltrate (under cover of a restaurant specializing in exotic Mardukan dishes, no less), they will make anyone who gets in their way (such as local mobsters who make the mistake of kidnapping Roger's fiance) very sorry that they did, and they will not rest until the rightful ruler has been restored. Once again, a lot of power-hungry people are going to learn a hard lesson: You do not, ever, mess with a MacClintock!

Former SEAL Michael Harmon ("Ghost") has settled down in the country of Georgia and built a commando-quality militia out of local tribesmen. The Keldara have an ancient history as mountain warriors and only needed modern weapons and training to bring them up to speed. Now, with the area safe from Chechen raiders and the various other terrorists that want Ghost's head, he can settle back and relax in his harem. However, a U.S. senator has a problem: a "major contributor's" daughter has been kidnapped into the Balkan sex-slave trade. The U.S. government can't find her and the Senator is very interested in changing that. $5 million interested. As Ghost and his Keldara warriors blast a gaping hole through the trade, it becomes apparent that there is more to the mission than a "poor missing waif." Being at war with Albanian gangs is one thing--taking on Washington is a different game.--From publisher description
