Publisher's Summary

Assigned to investigate a deadly accident, Lieutenant Steve Maxwell uncovers corruption and criminal collusion reaching far above his pay grade. To save his career he's dispatched to a distant planet to help upgrade its defense forces, in the company of an old friend and some of the most experienced Marines Steve's ever met; plus one of the most distracting.

Trouble is, the planet's antiquated defenses make its new-found wealth a very tempting target and there are those planning to take full advantage. As Steve and his colleagues strive to whip a rusty, run-down defense establishment into shape, the clock's running out....

A good third entry in the series

If you liked the first two books in the series, you'll like this one. The author's style for the series carries on. There is the usual expository dialogue, all of which is free from vulgarity and obscenity. I'm not a huge fan of the narrator's style, but he's very easy to understand and keeps his voices consistent.

There is a bit more sexuality than you'd find in one of Robert Heinlien's juveniles, but not very much, and all of the actual sex takes place offstage.

All in all, it's good enough for me to keep on buying these. Bravo to the team at Castalia House for getting the audio editions for the last two done quickly on the heels of the third book.
