#2 in the Amanda Garrett series. This 1997 novel, set in 2006, furthers the combat career of Commander Garrett.

Commander Amanda Garrett / USS Cunningham - gets involved in an attempt to keep Chinese civil war from going nuclear in 2006.

Compared with 'Choosers of the Slain', James Cobb has run out of ideas and this book disappoints.
