In the Stormy Red Sky (Lt. Leary)

Description:

Daniel Leary is Cinnabar's most successful space captain; his friend, Lady Adele Mundy, is its most efficient spy—but they've got their hands full this time as they face:

 

  • A Cinnabar Senator furious at losing an election—and still powerful enough to make her anger deadly.
  • The boy ruler of a star cluster who thinks he's a god—and who can sign the death warrants of even Cinnabar officials if a mad whimsy tells him to.
  • A world of slaves and escaped slaves, where the most savage beasts in the jungle used to be human.
  • An enemy base that could shrug off attack by powerful battlefleets—but which must fall to a single cruiser if Cinnabar is to survive.

 

            From palace to reeking jungle, from gunfights in grimy hangars to the flagship's bridge during a sprawling space battle, Leary and Mundy are in the thick of it again. Watch the galaxy explode—IN THE STORMY RED SKY
