Publisher Comments:

THE WAR IS OVER. THE TREATY IS SIGNED.

AND ALL IS WELL IN THE GALAXY…

 

Izzy Umboto is a hero of the conflict between the Society of Humanity and the Unity Party. Instead of retiring and living out her days quietly, shes wrangled command of her very own warship. Unfortunately, that ship is the less-than-state-of-the-art Patton.

 

Lieutenant Terrence Tordon, called “Trouble” by both his enemies and his friends, and even himself, is a career marine. The word “quit” isnt in his vocabulary.

 

Now Lieutenant Trouble and his troops have signed on with Commander Umboto, trading a higher paycheck for the promise of action.

 

For all is not well in the galaxy. On the scattering of planets along the rim, remnant thugs of the Unity Party still hold power. In the shipping lanes of rim space, pirates roam freely.

 

Umboto and Tordon will soon learn that enforcing the peace can be just as expensive as fighting the war—and the cost will be counted in human lives…

Synopsis:

A WAR WITHIN

 

Colonel Ray Longknife and Marine Captain Mary Rodrigo were once enemies in an interstellar war. Now theyre working together to keep the peace. But can they protect themselves from an enemy they cant even see?

 

When a bad space jump flings their starship thousands of light-years away from home, Longknife and Rodrigo make an amazing discovery: a planet inhabited by the descendants of a ships crew—lost three hundred years earlier.

 

As acting ambassador, Longknife is eager to welcome the planets population back into the fold of humanity. But Rodrigo is suspicious. She senses that something is wrong under the planets veneer of peace and prosperity. And shes right....
