Simon Kovalic, top intelligence operative for the Commonwealth of Independent Systems, is on the frontline of the burgeoning Cold War with the aggressive Illyrican Empire. He barely escapes his latest mission with a broken arm, and vital intel which points to the Empire cozying up to the Bayern Corporation: a planet-sized bank. There's no time to waste, but with Kovalic out of action, his undercover team is handed over to his ex-wife, Lt Commander Natalie Taylor. When Kovalic's boss is tipped off that the Imperium are ready and waiting, it's up to the wounded spy to rescue his team and complete the mission before they're all caught and executed. File Under: Science Fiction [ Friendly Faces | Traitor, Pilot, Banker, Spy | Embassy Games | Going in Hot ]

Review quote

"A wisecracking caper that nevertheless doesn't skimp on the details and human cost of interstellar war, like John Le Carre meets The Stainless Steel Rat. Moren is one to watch." "Moren gives us a Cold War thriller with wormholes and anti-grav fields." "Hypercool. It's like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain." "Moren is one to watch." "The Bayern Agenda reads like Mission Impossible set in space." "A frenzied story full of bold spycraft and exciting ground and air chases... Fans of suspenseful space opera will look eagerly for the next book." "A great spy story, with tidbits of science explaining the intergalactic travel and even a hint of romance to come." "one of the most entertaining genre mashups within an astronomical unit."
