Lieutenant Sven Tveskoeg is in disgrace. His victory on Hekati, and the emperor's favour, have turned his patron against him: General Indigo Jaxx wants Sven dead. Exiled to Wildeside, Sven waits for Jaxx's assassin. He hunts, he fieldstrips his weapons, he tries t to mind. At the age of 28, he's lived longer than he expected anyway. But then Sven finds himself offering to save the life of Jaxx's son. This means returning to Farlight, where he finds that the emperor is missing, his empire is collapsing, there are murderous riots in the capital and General Jaxx stands on the edge of ruin. All Sven has to do is thing. But when has he ever done anything that sensible...The devil-may-care, t quite 100 per cent human, mercenary soldier/killing machine kwn as Lieutenant Sven Tveskoeg and his like-minded team, the Aux, are back in this third explosive, n-stop action-filled adventure.
Smartly dressed, resourceful and discreet, David Gunn has undertaken assignments in Central America, the Middle East and Russia (among many other places). He is happiest when on the move and tends not to stay in one town or city for very long. He comes from a service family, has an impressive collection of edged weapons and sleeps with a shotgun under his bed. He has written two previous novels featuring Sven Tveskoeg and the Aux: Death's Head and Maximum Offence.
