Overview

Miles, Mystery and Mayhem (Vorkosigan Saga) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Diplomat, soldier, spy—Lieutenant Lord Miles Naismith Vorkosigan of the Barrayarayan Empire, a.k.a. Admiral Naismith of the Dendarii Free Mercenaries, is a young man of many parts.

Miles and his handsome cousin Ivan are calle dupon to play a simple diplomatic role on the capital world of Barrayar's old enemy until murder and deceit thrust them into Cetagandan internal politics at the highest levels, and Miles discovers the secrets of the haut-women's biological domain to be very complicated indeed.

Commander Elli Quinn, sent by Miles on the trail of those secrets, meets a man who marches to the beat of a very different drummer. Dr. Ethan Urquhart, obstretician from a planet forbidden to women, is on a quest at cross-purposes to Elli's mission—or is it?

Consequences of Cetagandan bioengineering continue to play out, this time on a Dendrii sortie to the crime planet of Jackson's Whole. When he encounters a genetically altered super-soldier, Miles's routine rescue strike takes a sudden hard turn for the unanticipated.

Ms. Bujold has carved out an admirable niche for herself with her Miles Vorkosigan books. Her characterization is amazing; Miles and her other characters all seem to have lives beyond what happens due to the plot. I never get the sense while reading her books that 'Oh, they had to do that because the plot needed them to.' Ms. Bujold is a credit to her craft and the SF genre. This volume is an omnibus reprint of 'Cetaganda', 'Ethan of Athos', and the novella 'Labyrinth', plus a new short essay.
