Miles Vorkosigan is Back -- and in Brilliant Form!
Miles and Cousin Ivan go to Cetaganda to play sprigs of the nobility at a state funeral. It was hoped they would gain diplomatic polish on this simple mission, but things don't stay simple when Miles is around, and he's soon playing detective in a strange alien culture. Miles had always wanted to save the Empire -- but the Cetagandan Empire wasn't quite what he'd had in mind....
The latest installment of the Hugo-award winning adventures of Miles Vorkosigan, in which Miles and Cousin Ivan go to Cetaganda to play the part of sprigs of the nobility doing their diplomatic duty by good old barrayar, this book finds Miles trying to play detective in a strange, complicated, and deceptively alien culture.
