#6 in the Freehold Universe series. In a war-torn interplanetary future, a tactical forces specialist transformed into a sociopathic killing machine – and the only one who can stop him is his former commander.

Kenneth Chinran commanded the elite unit assigned to take out an entire planet in a terrible war. Millions died; billions more perished in the aftermath. One doesn't send a sociopath on such a mission. A sociopath might not stop. Chinran did stop – but in the process nearly lost his sanity and his soul.

But one of Chinran’s men was a sociopath going in. Now he’s a trained sociopath with the knowledge and firepower to take out entire tactical teams, evaporate through security cordons and change identity at will. Who do you send after a killer like that? There’s only one answer: the man who trained him. The man who made him.

Many authors have attempted to write likable villians. Mr. Williamson starts with a protagonist whose fatal flaw is nothing less than the death of millions. Chinran is egostical yet remorseful for his actions. This is excellent, character driven story-telling.

This book Is a page turner, well written with just enough humor to prevent it from being overlay serious. I think he could have spent more time on one of the charters but all in all a great read. the action is well written and believable.
