Andrei Koscuisko is an Inquisitor for the Bench federation of worlds. It is his duty to root out - quickly, efficiently, quietly - anyone who would threaten the ruling order.
Andrei has been posted to the penal facility at Port Rudistal. Here hundreds of prisoners - traitors who dared dream of freedom and self-rule - await interrogation. They know an Inquisitor's judgment is firm and unassailable. Yet there is a line that even he may not cross.
Although an Inquisitor is not supposed to feel outrage, weakness or pity, Andrei is, above all, a man of honor. And now he must risk his career - and perhaps his life - exposing the truth that lies behind the black walls of Domitt Prison.
A riveting novel of one man's courage in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, Prisoner of Conscience again showcases one of the most promising voices in contemporary science fiction.

Matthews was ahead of our time -- given some of the events in the past couple of decades -- in tackling the subject of torture.
As in the previous book, still Andrej, the most conflicted of characters.
His voice; just an amazing voice.
It's a bit long for one sitting; the two part format is good.
Susan Matthews is clearly a very gifted writer.
