From the Publisher
The Direct Sequel to Crown of Slaves. Two New York
Times Best-Selling Authors Again Join Forces in a New Novel in
David Weber's Honor Harrington Universe.
As the slavemasters of Mesa plot against the Star Empire of
Manticore and the newly liberated slave planet of Torch, Anton
Zilwicki and the notorious Havenite secret agent Victor Cachat set
off on a dangerous mission to uncover the truth concerning a wave
of mysterious assassinations that have been launched against
Manticore and Torch. Most people are sure that the Republic of
Haven is behind the assassinations, but Zilwicki and Cachat suspect
others of being the guilty party.
Queen Berry of Torch was one of the
targets of the unknown assassins. The former head of the Ballroom
slave liberation organization, Jeremy X-now one of Torch''s top
officials, but still considered by many the most dangerous
terrorist in the galaxy-calls in some past favors owed to him. In
response, a security officer from Beowulf arrives in Torch to take
charge of Queen Berry''s security-a task made doubly difficult by
the young monarch''s resentment of bodyguards and the security
officer''s own growing attachment to her.
Meanwhile, powerful forces in the
Solarian League are maneuvering against each other to gain the
upper hand in what they all expect to be an explosive crisis that
threatens the very existence of the League itself.
