Summary
"#3 in the science fiction adventure Orphan's Legacy series, a saga of spy games and military action on an interplanetary scale. The balance point of interplanetary Cold War II between Earth and monolithic Yavet tips unexpectedly toward peace. Covert ops Captain Jazen Parker and his sharp shooting lover and partner Kit Born slide from world saving hazardous duty to escorting a telepathic alien monster home from Earth to mate. And the two of them are forced to consider a quiet domestic future together. But when old enemies' thirsts for power and revenge, Jazen's problematic past, and his former girlfriend, upset Jazen and Kit's personal balance point, the two cold warriors find their relationship, and their very survival, tested as never before. Lost in space, and from one another, they must each penetrate Yavet, the universe's most insular and repressive world, then foil a plot that could turn Cold War II hot and nuclear--or die trying. About Robert Buettner and the Orphan's Legacy Series: "Buettner goes well beyond. military science fiction. he understands. living as a soldier--the boredom punctuated by terror, the constant anxiety and self-doubt, the random chaos that battle always is, and the emotional glue that holds together people who may have nothing in common except absolute responsibility for one another's lives."--Joe Haldeman, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author "[O]nce in a while. a contemporary author penetrates to the heart of Heinlein's vision. to replicate the master's effects. [O]ne such book [is] Robert Buettner's Orphanage." --The Washington Post "Entertaining. Buettner shows the Heinlein touch." --Denver Post"--
