This story is the nineteenth full length novel in the "Honorverse" group of novels set some 2,000 years in the future. It is the third novel, after "Crown of Slaves (Honorverse)" and "Torch of Freedom" in a sub-series about how two super-spies from star nations which were originally at war fought to help free "genetic slaves" and the "seccie" descendents of slaves from the tyranny of the government of the planet Mesa and its' corrupt companies.

A particular enemy is a company called "Manpower" who are under the control of an organisation known to its inner core as the "Mesan Alignment." Everyone assumes that Manpower is simply a rich and corrupt company of genetic slavers out for a profit by genetically engineering people as perfectly tailored slaves and then selling them. Unfortunately for the galaxy they are much, much more than that ...

In the previous books in this sub-series the two unlikely allies, Manticoran super-spy Anton Zilwicki and the Havenite super-spy Victor Cachat went undercover on Mesa and found out what the Mesan Alignment is really up to. They then returned to their home nations and explained what they had found.

In this book Anton, Victor and some of their friends return to Mesa, hoping to get some more information, to find that the planet to which they have returned is on the brink of civil war in which the "seccies," nominally free but effectively second class citizens descended from slaves, are about to be made scapegoats and victims for the actions of the Mesan Alignment ...

Whilst there are a couple of the chapters transplanted from other branches of the series that have become common (for reasons I understand but annoy me) in the 'Honorverse', and the book (or at least the kindle version) could have done with another proof-read, I really liked this book.

Particularly after the first third, it has both the overarching plot contained within a single book that is missing from too many of the recent books in the series, and the mini-plots which are interesting in themselves as well as feeding the series narrative. This is so much better than most of the recent books, perhaps reflecting the fact that wars are generally much more 'exciting' when loosing is understood to be a realistic prospect. If you were, like I was, wondering whether it was worth buying this, buy it.

Obviously the warning about this book being so deep into the series that you shouldn't read this without having read the rest of them applies.

Format: Hardcover
The third entry in the "Wages of Sin" sub series in David Weber's "Honorverse", our heroic Spook duo (Victor Cachat and Anton Zilwicki) go back into the belly of the beast by returning to Mesa (after a brief bit of 40th Century plastic surgery). Once they get there, it doesn't take long for Anton to figure out something fishy is going on with Mesa's rulers and pretty soon he's deduced that Mesa are abandoning their (current) homeworld before the Grand Alliance can get there ("Project Houdini", although he never learns that Codename). Once Victor hears that, he decides the best thing to do is to forment a revolution (after all, it worked on Haven!) among the descendents of freed slaves ("Seccies") by co-opting one of the crime bosses.

What follows is a protracted ground war between the revolutionaries and the various Mesan security agencies, reminiscent of the Battle of Stalingrad (with "slightly" fewer human rights abuses). The security forces are certain it will be easy because their opponents are "Only Seccies" while the Crime Lords are sure they can win because they know their own territory (and have been stockpiling weapons). Also aiding the rebels is that, since the leadership are abandoning the planet, nobody is around to crack the whip and ensure that the competing security agencies work together, leading to an unco-ordinated response from the forces of oppression. And those who've read "Shadow of Freedom" will know that the Cavalry (or rather, Admiral "Mike" Henke's Tenth Fleet) is on its way.

While I mostly enjoyed the story, I did have a couple of caveats.

Much of this is very good, but the ending suffers from the "parallel storyline" effect - the crucial decisions and key events will be described in detail in the next "Saganami" book (I hope).

Great continuation of a series. Actually it is a little side step away from the mainline Honor Harrington series (although she does appear as a "guest star") and introduces (or rather focusses on) 2 other well known characters. As always with this series the action is well paced, believable and leaves you satisfied but wanting more from the next book with one or two loose ends still needing tying up. Hurry up David Weber.
