This space opera is the sixth of, to date, eight naval SF action stories featuring Daniel Leary, an officer in the space navy of the far future "Republic of Cinnabar" and his signals officer (and super spy) Adele Mundy.

Like David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series, although with rather different execution of a similar idea, this series imagines a far future technology for space travel and space warfare which imposes tactical, logistical and strategic challenges for space navy officers remarkably similar to those which the technology of fighting sail imposed on the wet navy officers of Nelson's navy. The spaceships use real sails, for instance and it has an impact when they get shot away.

Indeed, just as the first 12 Honor Harrington novels are rather like a far future, gender reversed re-creation of C.S. Forester's Hornblower novels, Drake confirmed in author's notes to this and other volumes in the series that the "Leary" novels were originally inspired by Patrick O'Brien's Aubrey and Maturin novels such as Master and Commander.

As this story begins, The Republic of Cinnabar has been backed into a corner by the enemy Alliance at the Diamondia system: the RCN is fighting desperately to hold it with two battleships, one of them eighty years old, against a larger enemy force. Cinnabar doesn't have the battleships to reinforce the RCN squadron, so instead they need a distraction: which is to be found by sending Daniel Leary, Adele Mundy, and the Corvette "Princess Cecile" to support a group of rebels in the Bagarian Cluster who have revolted against the Alliance.

David Drake at his usual quality. Leary gets even more unbelievable as these books progress. The story gets ever more bizarre, and characters ever more cardboard cut-outs. Read the first and then stop.

I really enjoy this series with its black humour. The way the characters are described and act is rather different from most Sci-Fi space opera, full of faults and character deficiences.
Lt. Leary is a skilled tactician and very able on a ship but needs hidden assistance off it. With his friend Adele Mundy who is generally clumsy but able to break into any information system and a deadly shot as well(Actually a superspy) they deal with unwinnable situations.
This is a sci-fi version of Patrick O'Brians sailing ship sagas. Indeed the spaceships even sail through space with masts and sails to shift them through other universes.
Great fun.

A typical, good military science fiction/Space opera yarn from David Drake, that does sum it up really, if you have read one David Drake book and enjoyed it, you should like them all.

As expected read the book in 3 days, did not want to put it down. Drake keeps on finding plots without losing interest in the characters. I have the next in the series ready to read.
