From the New York Times bestselling author of The Fall: The Crimson Shadow 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.
