As a confirmed fan of kris longknife, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to read of her great grandparents 'trouble' and Ruth.
If your a fan of the genre, you will love it. Well worth the read!
Trouble lives up to his reputation in a series of scrapes.
Overall a cracking adventurous read.

The Price of Peace 21 Aug. 2000
By Affaire de Coeur - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Body>When Lieutenant Terrance "Trouble" Tordon looks at the space ship Patton and at its captain, he questions his good sense for the first time. Captain Izzy Umboto is obviously a loose cannon. He questions her sanity as well, for accepting the Patton, a bucket of bolts which appears to be on its last leg. Still, Trouble is committed to the Marine Corps, so he vows to do his best. Trouble is captured by the slave drivers who have enslaved farmers to work their crops of illicit drugs. On his first night of captivity, he meets a young woman Ruth who embodies everything he does not want, including love and commitment. Enduring torture and humiliation, Trouble and Ruth manage to retain their dignity and their belief that they will be rescued. Meanwhile, Captain Izzy is doing her best to do just that, rescue the men who depended on her. It comes down to a battle, not to win the war, but to maintain the peace, and to exact whatever price may be required. But can peace be worth human lives and dignity? Mike Moscoe's The Price of Peace is action-packed and exciting space adventure, but it's also a love story, an exploration of the lengths to which sentient beings will go to maintain power and to maintain dignity, and it's a peek into the human psyche. The Price of Peace satisfies on many levels, including just plain entertainment.

Good space warfare 31 Jan. 2000
By Michael Huston - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mike Moscoe is one of those authors that I just buy the book without bothering to read the inside cover. I wouldn't miss one of his novels. His "First Dawn" series is a must read for any science fiction devotee and this series is very good. The characters are well developed and his universe is consistent, with some interesting ideas about how battles could be fought in space. "The Price of Peace" is the second novel of the series and as good as the first. If you like David Drake or Jerry Pournelle, you'd like this series. Good luck on finding Mike Moscoe novels at the book store, ACE doesn't promote him much.

H. Beam Piper for the 2000's 21 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Some compare Mr. Moscoe with current space-warfare authors but I believe his politics and character development harken back to the Fuzzy or Space Viking series by H. Beam Piper. As a military member I like the rah rah attitude of the space navy. It is good fun space opera and I look forward to the next book for the plane flight to Kuwait. I don't read this stuff to learn about physics.

Getting it done 4 July 2000
By Harvey A. Lewis - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Moscoe presents a complex and gritty postwar reality where things have to get done with skill rather than brute force. It is a time when the tattered remnants of a former space navy are trying to cover too much territory with too few resources and making up the difference with courage and ingenuity. In the background is a high conspiracy of shadowy movers and shakers who think they can have a war anytime they need to stir up the economy, and may be powerful enough to do just that.
Trouble comes to the fore 9 Jun. 2014
By D. G. Hulan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This was Moscoe’s second book in the jump universe, following The First Casualty. That one gave the back story of Kris Longknife’s Grampa Ray Longknife and his ties with the Nuu family; this one takes her Grampa Trouble (Terrence Tordon), then a Lieutenant commanding the Marine detachment aboard the cruiser Patton under Commander Izzy Umberto, onto a world being exploited by an interstellar conglomerate. Trouble is kidnapped and enslaved by the conglomerate, along with a few of his marines and other shipmates and quite a few civilians resident on the planet. One of the civilians is Ruth Edris-Morton, and she and Trouble are chiefly involved in keeping most of the captives alive and getting them rescued by Izzy and the rest of the cruiser’s crew. But that’s only the beginning of their adventures, as Ruth is kidnapped again and taken off-planet, and Trouble again finds himself enslaved with her before a decisive blow is struck against the conglomerate in the end. Good reading, as you’d expect from the author of the Kris Longknife books (as “Mike Shep-herd).
