Mercenary's Courage, the eighth Wild Geese science fiction novel by Steven M. Silver, sees Kodomir attacked by Raiders – the generic title for thieves, pirates, slavers – using a nuclear weapon. Pretending to be guns for hire, the Wild Geese are sent covertly into the Frontier but discover the Raiders they search for may be partners with a Settled Worlds power bloc and the reality is far grimmer than simple raiding. Something very dark is happening in the Frontier and the Geese find its heart is found on Jeppesen, a place where the morning's rising sun can bring incredible horror and where faith can be the deadliest gift there is. With friends and allies scattered across the stars, the Geese race against time to save Kodomir and, ultimately, themselves.
Steven M. Silver's Mercenary's Courage again puts the reader beside the former mercenaries known as the Wild Geese. Historian, combat veteran, and psychologist, Silver presents the hard moral choices confronting soldiers of any era and the emotional and psychological consequences of those choices.
