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.

Read like a futuristic Tom Clancy with covert mission, naval battle & political conspiracies.

This is a follow on book to "Crown of Slaves" that continues the shouldering aside of the bounds of the main Honorverse story by following what had been minor characters in the main series books. Many story lines are indeed interwoven and will provide a framework for fleshing out some events only passingly mentioned in the main story.

Read after "Crown of Slaves" to make it easier to follow.
