A crewman has been murdered aboard the USS Trident, and
all evidence points to ensign Janos of the Excalibur.
Calhoun is reluctant to accept that Janos, a powerful non-humaniod
whom the captain has known and trusted for years, could be
a killer and immediately launches an investigation into the
crime. But this troubling murder mystery soon escalates into
a full-fledged diplomatic crisis that threatens to pit Calhoun
and Shelby against the entire United Federation of Planets
- and the Starship Enterprise...
David's much loved New Frontier series continues with
his latest work Stone and Anvil. I don't know what
it is about this series, but they have been pretty well received
since the first edition hit the shelves back in 1997. Following
the exploits of Captain Mackenzie Calhoun and the crew of
the USS Excalibur, The New Frontier series is
a worthy addition to the Trek franchise.
latest release sees ensign Janos forcing Calhoun to recall
his own tempestuous past, his rocky relationship with a young
Elizabeth Shelby, and a long-ago exploit that may have everything
to do with the deadly emergency that now confronts them all.
Well written, well plotted, it's just a shame that the Enterprise
has to be wheeled in to provide some sort of hook to get none
New Frontier readers to purchase this book.
great to have David back in the command chair to help guide
Calhoun and the rest of the crew of the Excalibur through
uncharted Trek territory. Fans of his earlier work
will not be disappointed.
