This is a comedy of terrors. 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. Lord Miles Vorkosigan of Barrayar 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, Gregor's youngest Imperial Auditor (a special high-level troubleshooter) has no choice but to answer. Waiting on Graf Station are diplomatic snarls, tangled loyalties, old friends, new enemies, racial tensions, lies and deceptions, mysterious disappearances, and a lethal secret with wider consequences than even Miles anticipates: a race with time for life against death in horrifying new forms. The downside of being a troubleshooter comes when trouble starts shooting back.

Yeah, that was a really good book. Miles Vorkosigan, my favorite hero in all speculative fiction, is on the prowl again in this book, #13 in his own series. On the way home from his honeymoon, he is rerouted to the Graf space station by a message from his Emperor. There are problems on the station: ...

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...
