Supposed to be a milk run buying office supplies. Whoops.
Assassination attempts in fractured 3-way world that elites don't want unification.
Somber ending.

Maybe not quite as much fun/exciting as the earlier ones, but still a good read.

Great adventure, tight, well written, mix between military and politics. A glimpse into why some political structures don't work, how they happen and why people who live with them don't always see where the 'problem' is. Running social commentary, fun, fascinating...and the bonus of more in-depth glimpse of the history behind the characters in series.

[Kris] had spent an hour on the phone with Administrative Lieutenant Martinez. He was as helpful as his cheerful smile promised, but it was clear his job was to see that all the T's were crossed, I's dotted, and no firearms permit issued without a tree sacrificed to the paperwork god.

"We need full documentation of no less than three attempts on your life," he said, apparently reading form policy displayed right beside Kris's face on his old computer screen [...]

"Three assassination attempts." Kris tried to sound thoughtful rather than outraged. "I imagine that cuts down on the requests. Those that don't survive the first couple don't trouble your day much do they. "

"No, ah, they don't." Lieutenant Martinez had the good sense to at least look apologetic.
