Overview

John G. Hemry is the New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Fleet (writing as Jack Campbell). With his Paul Sinclair novels, he creates a world of "outstanding suspense, realism, and...first rate military SF." (Booklist)

Lieutenant Junior Grade Paul Sinclair must adjust to his new position on the warship USS Michaelson—juggling his Legal Officer responsibilities and his intensifying relationship with girlfriend Jen Shen.

When an explosion takes out most of Forward Engineering, Sinclair leads the effort to extinguish the fire. He's practically a hero. But when Captain Shen, Jen’s father, is brought in to conduct an investigation, it seems that he’s gunning for his daughter’s suitor. Soon Sinclair uncovers evidence that points to a cover-up—involving a rising star in the officer corps. His evidence is circumstantial, and the suspect is the son of a powerful vice admiral. He's determined to see justice done, but is he willing to risk his name, his career, and his future among the stars?

Good story, believable, especially to someone who has been in the Navy. Decent character development and logical plot continuation.

I just purchased a new copy of this on Amazon because B&N doesn't have it since it's out of print. Elegidly Google has some new machines that will print most out-of-print books for pretty cheap too. This is the 2nd in a series, I got into it by picking up the 1st at a dollar store (new) and love the series. This is the same author that did Stark's War if anyone ever read that series. This book focuses strongly on the U.S. navy (set in the future) going into great detail of many aspects of Navy life aboard 'starships' for lack of a better term. I highly recommend.
