Kate Richmond, former army ranger and ISS operative, has seen a lot in her life. Sabotage, espionage, cyber theft, and assassination missions have all played their parts in her journey to becoming a viper. Nothing surprises her much any more, not even a full-scale incursion of an alien race by the Merkiaari!
When a battle in the Border Zone leaves a pirate ship crippled, boarded by Alliance Marines, and reveals information that links Kate's brother with a dead viper and a bunch of Merkiaari corpses, it's safe to say that she's surprised. It's time for the most important mission of her life.
It's time to find her brother.

Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!
After Finishing Book 4, I'm sitting here waiting on some "BOOK FIVE!!!!" Hello????
I Jokingly told John Ringo once.. "WRITE FASTER" (Because I KNOW he HATES that), and his Wife almost took my head off! John rolled his eyes and told her "He's kidding, I know him, He knows I HATE hearing those words"...
.... But, ummm, Mark... WRITE FASTER!!!! (I REALLY hope you don't have a wife that will take my head off ;) You've had OVER A MONTH now since Publishing Book 4, and STILL No "Book Five"?!?!?! ;)
Mark Cooper's mastery of the genre and superb writing skills produced a book and series that is riveting. Well developed characters you can relate to, commiserate with or detest, as the case may be, combined with vivid settings and a riviting plot make this a wholly satisfying experience.
Mark and Mikael Naramour make an excellent team!
I love them all but perhaps Stone stands out for his grit, wisdom and warmth. He reminds me of someone I admire very much.
Michael Naramour is an awesome audio actor. I can't even begin to imagine how he manages to affect each of the character voices so convincingly much less keep them straight and consistent. Listening to his rendition brings the story to life in a way impossible by written word alone. I listen while walking and find 1 or 2 hours go by too soon.
i want more and soon!
With the entire universe at stake, new races of beings, imminent war set up in the first 3 books - this book was disproportionately dedicated to Kate and her unlikely antics to find her brother. The level of detail, hit and miss attempts were frankly boring and I kept hoping to get back to the real story. Narration was good as usual but this story was largely a waste of time for me.
I am not entirely sure what this volume was meant to represent. The moronic story of Kate is aggravating to listen to. She may have been a favorite within the first two novels, but it is decreasingly enjoyable when the author continually puts Kate's own self-interest over everything. By doing so, Mr. Cooper jeopardizes the attempt to continue a thread of a story line or plot with the other characters.
