In Enemy Hands violates one of the key rules of series fiction--this episode doesn't end at the book's end--but overall the book significantly advances the series, allowing Weber to develop his characterizations within a solid action plot. We discover reasons to like some members of the People's Republic; we learn more about the psychology of treecats; and Weber gets closer to the female psyche in its many forms. If only his grammar were better! But the book is definitely worth adding to any space opera collection.
