The Rising Publisher's Summary

Peter Raeder became the Commonwealth's first ace pilot in the war against the secessionist Mollies. That battle cost him his hand - and his right to fly the nimble Speeds that had been his first love. Now he's Flight Engineer on the fast carrier Invincible, a crack new ship with a picked crew, ready to fight the Mollies who control the universe's richest anti-hydrogen mines, and the loathsome spider-like alien Fibians who have come to their aid. There are only a few problems. The pirate raiders who attack the convoy taking him to his new posting, for one. And closer to home, the traitor onboard the Invincible who engineered the grisly death of Peter's predecessor, and who'll kill the entire crew unless Peter can stop him....

    Flight Engineer Peter Raeder saved his ship, but his heroism didn't follow the rulebook. The reward was a reprimand and a desk assignment - a fate worse than death for Raeder. Fortunately, a Marine General offers Raeder command of a hidden base deep in hostile space from which he will attack enemy shipping, a mission preferable to exile to an office cubicle...even if his chances of surviving this assignment are very nearly zero.
