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.
