About the Author:

John G. Hemry is a retired naval officer who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis before serving with the surface fleet and in a variety of other assignments. He is the author of the Paul Sinclair series and the Stark’s War series. As Jack Campbell, he is the New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Fleet series, The Lost Stars series, and Pillars of Reality series. He lives with his indomitable wife and three children in Maryland.

From Booklist:

Henry's superior military sf novel takes us aboard a modern space warship (as opposed to one conceptually derived from C. S. Forester), the USS Michaelson, and confronts its protagonist, Ensign Paul Sinclair, more with ethical dilemmas than with risks to life and limb. Not that the latter aren't there, in the form of accidents and a confrontation with a South Asian survey vessel that, when Captain Paul Wakeman believes it is attacking, the Michaelson destroys. When Wakeman is hauled before a court-martial for disobeying his orders, Sinclair is called to defend him. The captain, Sinclair insists, shouldn't be scapegoated for actions within the bounds of his orders, even if those orders were poorly phrased, and Wakeman's judgment was flawed. The last third of the book recalls nothing so much as The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial in an sf setting, and it attains the same high level of achievement. Although Henry probably has too much taste to launch a googolplexology from this book, if he were to do so, discerning readers might applaud. Roland Green
