What they will risk is nothing less than their lives. For although truth may be the first casualty of war, it’s not going to be the last…

From the Publisher

“Moscoe delivers the goods.”—Steve Perry, New York Times bestselling author
“A lot of fun…a refreshing change from the standard good guy/bad guy divisions in military SF.”—Jack McDevitt, National Bestselling Author

“Space scientists talking about science fiction often disparage the way space battles are depicted. Moscoe won’t be a target for any of those attacks: he’s got it down…I finished the novel wanting more.”—LRC Publications On-Line Reviews

“Good escapist fare.”—Locus
