Description

In John G. Hemry's terrific military science fiction series, a young officer risks everything in his fight for justice . . .

Lieutenant Junior Grade Paul Sinclair must adjust to his new position on the warship USS Michaelson--juggling his Legal Officer responsibilities and his personal life, as his relationship with girlfriend Jen Shen intensifies.

When an explosion takes out most of Forward Engineering, Sinclair leads the effort to extinguish the fire. He's practically a hero. But when Captain Shen, Jen's father, is brought in to conduct an investigation, it seems that he's gunning for his daughter's suitor. Soon Sinclair uncovers evidence that points to a cover-up--involving a rising star in the officer corps. His evidence is circumstantial, and the suspect is the son of a powerful vice admiral. Sinclair is determined to see justice done, but is he willing to risk his name, his career, and his future among the stars?
