Publisher's summary

Captain James Worthington, Roland Barcus and the crew of the deep space survey ship Ventura have been betrayed and blown out of the orbit of the planet Baytirus in a heinous ambush.

As they struggle to survive, the crew discovered they were sacrificed to protect a dark agenda. Now that they've fought their way free of their planet-bound trap, the survivors are ready to go home. Whether Earth wants them back or not.

Somewhat over-the-top but very entertaining

This being the last installment of the trilogy, Martin decides to end it in Dr. Strangelove one-upmanship fashion. He also, wrongly, conflates megalomania with liberal fascism. The earth governance was more of a kleptocracy headed by a psychotic nut-job than some collectivists pipe dream. Also, some of the SciFi elements were more than a bit outlandish.

Even so, the novel was a kick to go through, in no small part due to the excellent narration by Andrew Tell.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
