The universe is a dangerous place for humanity - and it's about to become more dangerous. Three races we've fought before have allied to halt our expansion into space. Their linchpin: the turncoat scientist Charles Boutin, who knows the CDF's biggest secrets. To prevail, the CDF must find out why Boutin did what he did.


If you thought the first book was good, this one is better, as it combines military SF with thoughtful SF; the question of identity, and what makes one who one is.

I lost momentum on this, so I shall try again some other time.
