Chanur's Legacy (The Chanur Novels #5) - C. J. Cherryh

A legacy of trouble

Ten years after Pyanfar Chanur, captian of "The Pride of Chanur", gave shelter to a human, thereby disrupting the complex power balances which existed between the seven races of the Compact, Pyanfar has become the most important personage in Compact space. Hilfy Chanur, once a member of her famous aunt's crew, is now captain of her own vessel, "Chanur's Legacy". And she's becoming more and more entangled in seemingly insoluble problems and increasingly hard-pressed to take care of her ship's business.

So when Meetpoint's stsho stationmaster offers her a million credits to transport a small, mysterious, "religious" object to a fellow stsho on Urtur Station, it seems like a golden opportunity. After all, a million credits is extreemly generous, perhaps even too generous. Yet despite her misgivings, Hilfy feels it's a commision she just can't turn down. But soon she and the "Legacy" are caught in an ever-tightening web of intrigue. And only time will tell whether the young captain can determine who is truly her ally and who is her enemy in this deadly game od interstellar politics...
