Prince George, Earl of New Britain, was supposed to hold a position of great importance on Buckingham, capital world of the Second Commonwealth. However, Prince George wasn’t on Buckingham. He hadn’t been for seven years, in fact. The Federation War had stranded him on the resort world of Camerein, His Royal Highness little more than a footnote to the long, bitter war.
Newly made Captain David Spencer has proven his worth time and again on the fields of battle. But his latest promotion comes with some strings attached. He’ll have to lead a top secret mission to Camerein, to determine once and for all the fate of Prince George.
Camerein is now in play. With a nearby shuttle crash putting Prince George and the other stranded resort guests on the move, Captain Spencer beginning his search, and the Federation looking for one last bargaining chip for the war’s endgame, the resort world of Camerein is about to host a deadly game of cat and mouse. The future of the Second Commonwealth could rest on who catches whom.
Rick Shelley concludes the Federation War trilogy with another great novel that puts the high tech toys and skilled tactics of David Spencer’s Royal Marines team to use on the home front, bringing every sensation of war home to the reader.
