She has won another fight and contemplates taking a vacation or sabbatical. An old employer suggested she should try stopping at a place he knew of, Simplex-by-the-Sea, and with nothing else pressing, she goes there. It turns out to be a training ground for bodyguards, Matadors, at a certain school outside of town. The training is intense and only for the best fighters. The result of the training are the best bodyguards in the galaxy. The headmaster is a mysterious fellow who can do what he expects of any of the students, but he also seems to be something of a rebel. This school is really a school for revolutionaries, though not of the expected sort. He also has some rather odd plans that seem to be truly psychic, but are more well thought out plans, like Hari Sheldon of the 'Foundation' series by Isaac Asimov.
The bodyguards are hired by various groups who are powerful and influential. The idea is that the government is tottering on the brink of collapse and these bodyguards can be a force for better government in the future, along with protecting the probable leaders of that government.
This book seems to be the middle of three books, related by Dirisha and her adventures.
On another note, the sexual mores of the characters is interesting. They seem to be able to feel comfortable being in love and sexual with who they are with, and not diminish their feelings for who they are not with. Part of that is the security they have of their own persons and the security of their relationships. I kind of figure it is like reading two (2) or three (3) books at the same time: you read one, put it down, pick another and read, put it down, go back to the first and it is as if you never stopped readding.
the series and it's just as good the second time around.
Oh, the complete series is:
The Man Who Never Missed
The Machiavelli Interface
The 97th Step
The Musashi Flex
