Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Fall: The Crimson Shadow comes a compelling and suspenseful tale of politics and power set in the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Elim Garak has ascended to Castellan of the Cardassian Union...but despite his soaring popularity, the imminent publication of a report exposing his peoples' war crimes during the occupation on Bajor looks likely to set the military against him. Into this tense situation come Dr. Katherine Pulaski - visiting Cardassia Prime to accept an award on behalf of the team that solved the Andorian genetic crisis - and Dr. Peter Alden, formerly of Starfleet Intelligence. The two soon find themselves at odds with Garak and embroiled in the politics of the prestigious University of the Union, where a new head is about to be appointed. Among the front-runners is one of Cardassia's most respected public figures: Professor Natima Lang. But the discovery of a hidden archive from the last years before the Dominion War could destroy Lang's reputation.

As Pulaski and Alden become drawn into a deadly game to exonerate Lang, their confrontation escalates with Castellan Garak - a conflicted leader treading a fine line between the bright hopes for Cardassia's future and the dark secrets still buried in its past.

    "Spoiler alert "

    I enjoy this book very much, there were good characters and a good storyline. My only complaint is the villain of the piece was a human never mentioned anywhere else in the book, also when Polanski is held captive she see her kidnapper but never mentions that he is a human. You may say why would she but they are on Cardassia prime so unless he was a cardassian , his species should have been commented on. I think it would have been more of an inigma if the bad guy had been Parmak , Garak's friend and a doctor Garak interrogated when he was in the obsidian order. I think that would have been a good plot twist.

    "Political thriller Trek"

    Is ok, though I'm more of an action trek fan.. .
    Well written and good character development.
    Is particularly interesting to see a version of what happens to Cardassia and Garak.

    "I really enjoyed this book"

    This was a great book. it's been very well read. Garak has grown a lot as a character and his relationship with Bashir has been explored nicely contrasted against the events of his life now

    "More DS9 please!"

    Robert Petkoff can do no wrong when it comes to Star Trek audiobooks and makes it worth every penny, even when the source material is average. That being said, I beg-- BEG-- S&S audio to please make more full length Star Trek audiobooks with this genius of a narrator.

    Una does an excellent job of writing for Garak and Robert Perkoff voices him to the letter!

    "Lazy writing"

    Well first the author did not bother to create a truly cardassian society he or she simply took a human culture and overlaid a few cardassian terms. At no point did the story have a true Star Trek feel. To be honest this story read more like a mediocre fanfiction than a serious Star Trek novel.

    "Brilliant Character Evolution "

    As both an audiobook fan and a DS9 fan, it has been a long dry time since the last these two world have come together so brilliantly. Una McCormack has allowed use to see a world with a checkered past and a bright future. There are sure to be parallels drawn to the post-war reconstruction of West Germany or Japan, as those nations struggled to come to terms with their past crimes at the same time Elim Garak and Dr. Pulaski manage to both evolve and remain true to their established selves. Plus, not to give too much away, to hear well placed reference Douglas Adams is worth the three or four audible credits alone. If you love DS9, this is a must listen! - AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY

    "Good performance. Kind of a stale story"

    It's an alright story. I really like Garak and DS9. The performance was good but the story was a little boring. A lot talking and character development mostly. It was definitely interesting but I think it was cut fast and short near the end. Would be a good series to continue I think. I do recommend it if you're interested in the Cardassians

    "Hmm boring book."

    Obviously the writer has the technical ability, but the story is very, very, very boring! I'm a big Star Trek reader this has the potential to be a great book but it turned into a really boring story.

    "Excellent writing and narration"

    I was very impressed by this author. She had excellent character development, as well as being true to the Star Trek canon. I look forward to other books by this author. The narration was excellently done. He is a very skilled oral interpreter of literature. Kudos!

    "incredible story"

    I have listened to the last 4 Star Trek released on audible and this story is the best by far.
    I think it's helpful to be a fan of the franchise and watched the series, but nonetheless, I think the narrative is excellent and engrossing.
    I hope a new Star Trek book is coming in the near future from this author.
    Also, as a fan of Star Trek, I would hope Simon and Schuster might release other audiobooks from past books, such as the Section 31 series.

    Story
    "Not Bad, But Not Good Either"
    Would you try another book from Una McCormack and/or Robert Petkoff?

    Petkoff yes, McCormak, no


    What could Una McCormack have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Add suspense, speed up the pacing, give the readers a chance to solve the mystery


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The descriptions of Prime


    Do you think Enigma Tales needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it left no cliffhangers


    Any additional comments?

    This book was too slow. It was supposed to be a mystery, but it never built any suspense. Additionally, I dislike when the mystery isn't solvable with the material given. This was a character sketch of Dr. Pulaski and Garrik, not a novel
