Overview

THE TIDE OF WAR IS RISING-AND THE SHARKS ARE CLOSING IN!

When the Republic of Cinnabar doesn't have enough battleships to deal with all the crises in its war with the Alliance, it sends the next best thing: Commander Daniel Leary and his friend, the spy Adele Mundy. This time they're off to help the Bagarian cluster in its rebellion against the Alliance, but they'll quickly find that the worst threats to the rebels are the treacherous politicians leading them.

Leary and Mundy use electronic espionage, sub-machine guns, and shipkilling missiles to outwit political rivals, put down mutiny, and capture an Alliance fortress. When all else fails, they'll strike for the heart of the Alliance—and then throw their tiny corvette into a major fleet action in order to turn the tide.

A cascade of non-stop action as only David Drake can write it!

Meet the Author

Vietnam veteran, former lawyer, former bus driver, and now famous author, David Drake tells a military story like no other. His readers recognize that he can take them where no one else can, with gut-wrenching description that puts them face-to-face with the enemy, and in the midst of the action right on the battlefield. He helped create the audience for mercenary military science fiction with his bestselling "Hammer's Slammers" books. Drake graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Iowa, majoring in history (with honors) and Latin. His stint at Duke University Law School was interrupted for two years by the U.S. Army, where he served as an enlisted interrogator with the 11th Armored Cavalry in Vietnam and Cambodia. Drake has a wife, a son, and various pets.

In addition to Drake's celebrated novels of Hammer's Slammers, his works for Baen include the previous five novels in the Lt. Leary series—With the Lightnings, Lt. Leary, Commanding, The Far Side of the Stars, The Way to Glory, and Some Golden Harbor—as well as Starliner, Ranks of Bronze, Redliners, the "General" series (with S.M. Stirling) and the ""Belisarius"" series (with Eric Flint), and many more.

    No matter what the mess Leary is assigned, he manages to turn it into an unqualified success, though there are times when the results are far from promising.

    Leary forever

    This is another in a series of Hornblower like space opera adventures that you can't put down.

    Excellent outer space military science fiction thriller

    The war continues unabated between the Republic of Cinnabar and the Alliance of Free Stars. Although his side is short on battleships and experienced combat officers, Cinnabar Space Navy Officer Daniel Leary expects to be mothballed since his mentor on the Board was replaced by someone who detests the maverick as success does not matter political connections do. Instead he and his crew are assigned to help the fledgling navy of the Independent Republic of Bagaria, who seceded from the Alliance. Espionage agent Signal Officer Adele Mundy accompanies Daniel and his crew. Upon arrival at the frontier republic, they find the biggest problem is from within the divided Bagarian political leadership as treason seems to be the norm especially for those who lost power when Bagaria left the Alliance. --- The latest Leary outer space military science fiction thriller (see SOME GOLDEN HARBOR, WITH THE LIGHTNINGS and THE WAY TO GLORY, etc.) is an excellent entry that has the author¿s trademark look at the brutality of war, but much more. The story line contains the usual Mr. Drake¿s deep look at the outcome of hostilities on civilian populations as well as the surviving military. However, the tale also provides a fascinating political twist that is mindful of Iraq and the Baath party. Those who were in power under the Alliance want back what they lost while those who gained power refuse to share. WHEN THE TIDE RISES is a thought-provoking entertaining entry in the Cinnabar-Alliance war. --- Harriet Klausner
