A nice, tight, smart little sci-fi thriller in the tradition of naval adventure potboilers. In true hard SF form, the space battles are based on existing physics, so real-time strategy and delayed-light tactics are used every time "Black Jack" Geary steers his fleet into action. The "man-out-of-time" element also serves to enhance the already artificial glow of this reluctant hero placed in an impossible situation.
