The galaxy is mired in a cold war between two superpowers, the Illyrican Empire and the Commonwealth.
Thrust between this struggle are Simon Kovalic, the Commonwealth s pre-eminent spy, and Kyle Rankin, a lowly soldier happily scrubbing toilets on Sabea, a remote and isolated planet.
However, nothing is as it seems. Kyle Rankin is a lie. His real name is Eli Brody, and he fled his home world of Caledonia years ago. Simon Kovalic knows Caledonia is a lit fuse hurtling towards detonation.
The past Brody so desperately tried to abandon can grant him access to people and places that are off limits even to a professional spy like Kovalic.
Kovalic needs Eli Brody to come home and face his past. With Brody suddenly cast in a play he never auditioned for, he and Kovalic will quickly realize it s everything they don t know that will tip the scales of galactic peace.
Sounds like a desperate plan, sure, but what gambit isn’t? “The Caledonian Gambit” is a throwback to the classic sci-fi adventures of spies and off-world politics, but filled to the brim with modern sensibilities.
