In the fourth book of the series, James McGill is up for promotion. Not everyone is happy about that, and McGill must prove he's worth his stripes. Deployed to a strange alien planet outside the boundaries of the Galactic Empire, he's caught up in warfare and political intrigue. Earth expands, the Cephalopod Kingdom launches ships to stop us, and a grand conspiracy emerges among the upper ranks of the Hegemony military.

in contrast to the last book this is a big step down. Combat is less engaging, interpersonal stories aren't as compelling and the humour is not as funny. Also Carlos is insanely annoying.
