This book is actually the third book in the series. With the Lightning is book 1 and Lt. Leary, Commanding is book two.

A good solid offering in the series. I'd give it 3 1/2 stars, but that option isn't available. Didn't like it quite as much as the second book, but liked it better than the first.

In this novel, Leary's ship is decommissioned and bought by a count from a neighboring star system. Mundy needs to be on the ship and wants Leary to command her, so he goes on half pay to command the ship on this mission. Typical hijinks ensue, and as per usual in the series, a good space battle in the last 100 pages.

Good solid space opera!
