A rich Komarran merchant fleet has been impounded at Graf Station in distant Quaddiespace, after a bloody incident on the station docks involving a security officer from the convoy's Barrayaran military escort. Just the sort of situation that calls for the attention of the Imperial Auditors, Barrayar's special, high-level trouble-shooters. As luck would have it, Lord Miles Vorkosigan, the empire's youngest Auditor, just happens to be in the area. Of course, he and his wife, Lady Ekaterin, have other things on their minds, such as getting home in time to attend the long awaited births of their first children. But when duty calls -- in the voice of Barrayar's Emperor, Gregor -- Miles has no choice but to answer. Waiting on Graf Station are diplomatic snarls, tangled loyalties, old friends, new enemies, racial tension, lies and deceptions, mysterious disappearances, and a lethal secret with wider consequences than even Miles anticipates. The entire system is in danger and time is running out. Miles Vorkosigan is uncomfortably aware that the downside of being a trouble-shooter comes when the trouble starts shooting back...

Imperial Auditor Miles and his wife Ekaterin just want to make it home in time to see their babies born (like most civilised people, they're opting for a replicator birth). However, enroute, Miles is asked to stop and investigate a minor incident - Barrayaran troops have apparently created quite a d...

I loved it. I can't believe that I'm nearly at the end of the series. It's hard to believe the level of quality that Bujold has sustained throughout. This is a mystery-flavored Miles story, not untempered with love. Some old friends show up, there's some kidnapping, no little hilarity, and lots of e...
