Format: Mass Market Paperback
Hollow Men, by Una McCormack, is one of those "love it or hate it" types of novels. It's a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine story that takes place during the series itself (as opposed to afterwards, as the latest DS9 books have been). In the series episode, "In the Pale Moonlight," Captain Sisko had to go against all of his ethics in order to trick the Romulans into joining the Dominion War, as the Federation was losing. The situation spiraled out of control until he was guilty of countenancing murder in order to get the job done. Hollow Men is the aftermath, and it's told in McCormack's normal style. Not many "events" occur, and the book lives or dies on whether you believe in (and are intrigued by) the characterizations and the internal aspects of the plot. Me? I loved it. But your mileage may vary.
After the events of the television episode, Sisko is on his way back to Earth to attend a conference, the first one that the Romulans will be a part of. Starfleet Intelligence wants Garak, the Cardassian tailor and ex-spy who performed most of the skullduggery, to come along. Sisko is being eaten up by guilt for his actions, trying desperately to justify them internally but hating himself more and more, and this carries over to Garak. Garak, of course, is concerned that Sisko will break and confess everything, and he's certain he's going to end up in a Federation prison. When they get to Earth, however, they get wrapped up in more intrigue, as an ex-starfleet officer turned peace activist becomes even more important to the entire war effort, and secrets that should never be revealed are in danger of coming out.
McCormack is the author of the Cardassian story in The Worlds of Bajor: Volume One, which I happened to love.

"Hollow Men" is a sequel to DS9's sixth season episode "In the Pale Moonlight", one of the best Star Trek episodes ever made. "Hollow Men" focuses on Sisko and Garak once again, but in more a John le Carré-like story, which features Starfleet Intelligence and Section 31.

I love the way Una writes DS9. This story fits in perfectly in the series. I would love to see more of Garak (or other Cardassian) stories by her. But it is not just his character that stands out in this novel. All characters of DS9 are described the way we have come to adore them. Great job done.

This book promises so much - delivers so little. It has two plots that are completely separate from each other. It is a, no pun intended, pale follow up to In the Pale Moonlight. I expected an interesting follow up but Sisko tells the Admirals what really happened to Vreenak - nothing comes of it and the plot goes off in another direction.

This book is simply average.
