A rich Komarran merchant fleet has been impounded at Graf Station, after a bloody incident on the station docks. Commanded by his Emperor to intervene diplomatically, Lord Miles Vorkosigan--a special high-level troubleshooter--has no choice but to comply. However, the downside of being a troubleshooter becomes apparent when trouble starts shooting back.
