David Drake was attending Duke University Law School when he was drafted. He served the next two years in the Army, spending 1970 as an enlisted interrogator with the 11th armored Cavalry in Viet Nam and Cambodia. Upon return he completed his law degree at Duke and was for eight years Assistant Town Attorney for Chapel Hill, North Carolina. He has been a full-time freelance writer since 1981. Besides the bestselling Hammer's Slammers series, his books for Baen include Ranks of Bronze, All the Way to the Gallows, Redliners, and many more. His "Lord of the Isles" fantasy novels for Tor are genre best sellers. Some Golden Harbor is the sixth novel in the popular RCN series. The previous titles are: With the Lightnings; Lt. Leary, Commanding; The Far Side of the Stars; The Way to Glory and Some Golden Harbor. The next in the series, In the Stormy Red Sky, is coming in May 2009.
The fast-paced sixth adventure of Republic of Cinnabar Space Navy officers Daniel Leary and Lady Adele Mundy (after 2006's Some Golden Harbor) finds Leary in a precarious position. When his patron falls ill and is replaced as chief of the Navy Board by a hostile admiral, Leary expects to be placed on the inactive list despite the ongoing war between Cinnabar and the Alliance of Free Stars. Instead he finds himself assigned to shore up the navy of the Independent Republic of Bagaria, a frontier system that broke away from the Alliance and now looks to Cinnabar for aid. With no resources other than his own ship and crew, shackled with allies more dangerous than the enemy, Leary must find a way to relieve besieged Cinnabaran forces. Drake has always been known for his ultrarealistic depiction of combat and its aftermath, and he's at the top of his form. (Mar.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
As tension between the Republic of Cinnabar and the rival Alliance mount, the RCN (Republic of Cinnabar Navy) sends its best commander, Daniel Leary, and his espionage expert and friend, Adele Mundy, to assist the peoples of the Bagarian cluster in their revolt against the Alliance. Using the latest technology as well as their own inventiveness, Leary and Mundy pull out all the stops to help the rebels, only to discover that the movement's worst enemy lies within. Continuing his RCN space opera (With the Lightnings; Lt. Leary, Commanding; The Far Side of the Stars; The Way to Glory; Some Golden Harbor), Drake maintains his high story-crafting standards and demonstrates his military expertise. Patterned in part on Patrick O'Brien's Aubry/Maturin series, Drake's latest novel features the same crew-based camaraderie, especially under fire, and belongs in most libraries.
