Internal pressures, enormous military expenditures, and the destruction of their primary energy source have brought the Klingon Empire to the verge of catastrophic collapse.
To avert disaster, Gorkon, Chancellor of the Klingon High Council, proposes negotiations between the Federation and Klingon Empire, negotiations that will put an end to the years of hostility between the two powers, and herald a new era of peace and cooperation. Captain James T. Kirk and the U.S.S. Enterprise are dispatched to escort the Chancellor safely into Federation space.
But a treacherous assassination brings negotiations to a sudden halt and places Kirk and Dr. McCoy in the hands of the Federation's greatest enemy. With time running out, Spock and the Enterprise crew work to uncover the deadly secret that threatens to propel the galaxy into the most destructive conflict it has ever known.

Not a bad read, I think I liked the movie better.
Star Trek VI may have been the best of all the Star Trek films (yes, even better than the new updated version). This book was so well written, it may be even better than the film. I found the aged crew of the Star Trek Enterprise to be more fun than their younger counterparts. There was a great villain in General Chang combined with the classic "gusto" of Kirk, this book is one of my favorites.
