The Son Also Rises . . .
On a near future Earth, Good Man does not mean good at all. Instead, the term signifies a member of the ruling class, and what it takes to become a Good Man and to hold onto power is downright evil. Now a conspiracy hundreds of years in the making is about to be brought to light when the imprisoned son of the Good Man of Olympic Seacity escapes from his solitary confinement cell and returns to find his father assassinated.
But when Luce Keeva attempts to take hold of the reins of power, he finds that not all is as it seems, that a plot for his own imminent murder is afoot - and that a worldwide conflagration looms. It is a war of revolution, and a shadowy group known as the Sons of Liberty may prove to be Luce's only ally in a fight to throw off an evil from the past that has enslaved humanity for generations.

Great story set in Hoyt's "Darkship Thieves" universe! The citizens of Earth rise up against the rule of the Good Men.
I have a great deal of sympathy for the hero of this book. The author handles his trials with humor and sensitivity. This is a great extension of the Darkship series. Reading the first two books isn't neccessary but would help even though this book has only a brief intersection with the charcter and events of the first two books. I quite enjoyed this book and will recommend it to my husband and my teenagers.
I have read this book before but this tme I listened to the Audiobook. As usual there were many instances of missing words including the last sentence of the book. (On my Kindle App)
