    "Military court room drama"

    I am enjoying this military justice series by Jack Campbell. I like military justice books and military court room drama. The first half of this book covers the routine life on a USS Naval space ship. Situation may be heading toward war and the allies on earth are conducting naval exercise to show the enemy they can work together. I enjoyed the British ship with a women captain play chicken with the interfering enemy ship. An explosion occurs on the USS Maury the sister ship of the USS Michaelson. Lt Paul Sinclair stationed on the Michaelson and his girlfriend Lt Jen Shen is on the Maury as an engineer. The explosion is in engineering and the Michaelson comes to help. The second half of the book is court room drama as Lt Shen is accused of sabotage it appears she is accused because she was the only survivor from engineering. The suspense builds trying to defend Shen when there appears to be no defense available. I enjoyed the suspense and drama along with the moral dilemma. If you like this type of book you will enjoy it. Campbell is a great story teller. Nick Sullivan does a good job in narrating the story.

    "Not compelling, but an interesting read"

    The JAG in space series is really only good for those people who like courtroom dramas. Like all of the series there is nothing in the story that is particularly science fiction - it happens to be a court room story that involves a problem with a space ship.

    In this story the actual case seems to be very improbable and it is disappointing that the defense is so poor that no credible or plausible witnesses are found and the really obvious defense argument [that if it so much equipment was tampered with how could it have occurred in such a way that everyone not notice it in any way?] is not even addressed during cross examination.

    To enjoy this story you really need to like stuff that goes on in a court room. By this time (the third novel in the series) the mundane stuff has become a little tiresome and seems like padding; weighing too heavily against any action that occurs. With about a third of the novel dealing with the courtroom stuff directly I would have liked better development of the arguments and the resolution is far too obvious and predictable, especially with the patently poor prosecution case.

    Still there is some interest in the resolution of the case. If you're looking for science fiction or space drama this book and this series is definitely not for you. However, if you have some spare credits you could certainly do worse than this book.

    "My Only Disappointment by the author"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who won't look beyond the superficial


    What was most disappointing about Jack Campbell’s story?

    I loved the other 3 JAG in Space books but there were some logical flaws that I can't get past. His point is that often scapegoats are found and evidence is manipulated in such a way to protect the people really responsible. So far so good. The problem is that the setup in THIS book requires too many suspensions of disbelief. Lt. Shen is accused of having set up all the equipment in Engineering to fail simultaneously to sabotage her ship. Experts show that she was one of only a couple of people who could have done that.
    But Mr. Hemry (Jack Campbell) ignores the questions of how long it would have taken her to do this and wouldn't there have been obvious modifications in the equipment that would have made others suspicious. Every time the dialog reached the point where this was the next logical issue it was ignored. I found myself yelling back at the audio. A real shame and I hope someday he comes back to military justice as the main theme. In the meantime I will keep anxiously waiting for more Lost Fleet books.
    John Hemry is one of the best in the business and we're all entitled to one mistake :)
