With its ally Erewhon growing restive, the Star Kingdom's Queen Elizabeth sends a mission to Erewhon, but upon arriving at their destination, they find a conspiracy led by the Solarian League's military delegation.

Blackwell North Amer
The Star Kingdom's ally Erewhon is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Added to the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon's stellar backyard, which High Ridge refuses to deal with, the recent assassination of the Solarian League's most prominent voice of public conscience indicates the growing danger of political instability in the Solarian League - which is also close to Erewhon.
In desperation, Queen Elizabeth tries to defuse the situation by sending a private mission to Erewhon led by Captain Zilwicki, accompanied by one of her nieces. When they arrive on Erewhon, however, Manticore's envoys find themselves in a mess. Not only do they encounter one of the Republic of Haven's most capable agents - Victor Cachat - but they also discover that the Solarian League's military delegation seems up to its neck in skullduggery.
And, just to put the icing on the cake, the radical freed slave organization, the Audubon Ballroom, is also on the scene - led by its notorious and ruthless assassin, Jeremy X.

Lovely futuristic spy thriller. Loved the rare bipartisan between Haven & Manticore.
Real eccentric ensemble.
Sure I'm mixed on Haven's technically winning the sideshow battle & gaining an alliance with Erewhon. However, I loved blonde Haven leader going ballistic on "furry tactics" by loose cannon given Haven foreign intelligence's sluggish cautious nature after purging Saint Just & his cronies in counterrevolution. Ditto's Cachet's heavy world girlfriend bigger & stronger than him
Would be boring if Manticore win all the time.
