Synopsis

Steward is a Beta— a clone. In his memories, he’s an elite commando for an orbital policorp— but because his Alpha never did a brain-scan update, Steward’s memories are fifteen years out of date . . . and in those fifteen years, everything has changed.

An interstellar war destroyed the company that held his allegiance. His wife has divorced him, along with the second wife that he can’t even remember. Most of his comrades died in a useless battle on a world called Sheol, and those who survived are irrevocably scarred. An alien race has arrived and become the center of a complex and deadly intrigue.

And someone has murdered him.

Good read
May 18th, 2014
Well written, briskly paced, entertaining. Makes good use of the genre - this story would not have worked without science fiction or fantasy. Even if I'd paid full price this book would have been well worth my time and money. Recommended.
