Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy-but they've got their hands full this time as they face: A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election-and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly. The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god-and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to. A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human. An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets-but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive. From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again

The tyrannical Alliance continurs its war against the Republic of Cinnabar, and Daniel Leary, newly promoted to Commander, and his crew have a new mission: Stop Dunbar's World from falling to an invasion by the planet Pellegrino. Nataniel Arruns, son of the dictator of Pelligrino, has landed with an army, intending to set himself up as warlord and turn the planet's population into workers--serfs--of their new Pellegrinian masters. 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. Somehow he must capture an enemy base defended by plasma cannon and shipkilling missiles and supported by a cruiser in orbit. But Leary has the help of Signals Officer Adele Mundy, who can make computer networks do the apparently impossible. Leary, Mundy and the crew of the Princess Cecile have gone up against impossible odds before ... and their opponents are still wondering just what hit them

"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.
