From the New York Times bestselling author of The Fall 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 people's 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 reluctant leader treading a fine line between the bright hopes for Cardassia’s future and the dark secrets still buried in its past...™, ®, & © 2016 CBS Studios, Inc.

Enigma Tales Review
- June 18, 2017Daniel KukwaAs far as I'm concerned, Una McCormack should be the only author allowed to write for Elim Garak and the Cardassian Union...she never fails to grasp the threads of a story, and spin them into fibers of gold. This is beyond excellent -- this is sublime "Star Trek", and in its complexity and brilliance, another example of what a gift DS9 and its universe was to the wider world. Simply breathtaking from start to finish.more
