StarFleet meets the Island of Dr. Moreau, only better.

Review by Kathy LaFollett

A crewman is murdered aboard the USS Trident, all evidence including DNA from the victims points to Ensign Jano of the USS Excalibur. Enter Mackenzie Calhoun. Calhoun serves up serious character development and charm. The reader will find themselves drawn into his life, and past. Calhoun, being a friend of Janos for years, cannot believe his trusted friend could be the killer and immediately launches an investigation into the crime.

The murder soon escalates into a full-fledged diplomatic crisis that threatens to pit Calhoun and Captain Elizabeth Shelby against the United Federations of Planets as well as Captain Jean Luc Picard of the Enterprise.

Shelby presents a fascinating ying to Calhouns yang. The storyline between these two powerful individuals is laced icing on the cake.

The reader is given a cameo appearance from Mr. Spock in this great tale. More icing indeed.

The story is laid out with such finesse and lilting chronology that the reader will find themselves thoroughly engrossed easily passing through the book without concern for time or page number. We are allowed to see cause and effect while reading through the Then and Now of our main characters. The reader is introduced to their entry into academy, as well as their lives prior to that entrance. The hindsight view adds depth and personal knowledge enriching each page.

A fine piece of writing and storytelling. I was sad to see the last page.
