Summary, etc.:
Roger Ramius Sergei Alexander Chiang McClintock hasn't done anything the easy way. The spoiled prince became a man the hard way on the planet Marduk. Watching most of your bodyguards, bodyguards who have become friends, closer to you than your own brothers and sisters, die to keep you alive will do that. And it tends to make you dangerous in too many ways. Now Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans. Home Fleet, the largest and most powerful of the Empire's fleets is under the traitors' control, and no one in a position of power on Old Earth has the means or the will to do anything about it.
