THE LEGENDARY, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED UNDER JURISDICTION SERIES CONTINUES! The latest entry in Matthew's Under Jursidiction series, now in mass market paperback.
Andrej Koscuisko is a former Fleet Medical Officer for the enormous totalitarian star empire, the Jurisdiction. But when he served in the Fleet, Andrej’s real job was not medicine, but to act as a torturer. Years ago, he left that life behind. But now The Angel of Death, a savage terrorist organization, means to capture the system he calls home. The only way to bring down an organization that has slain whole systems of men, women, and children is for Andrej to embrace the savagery in his own heart and once again take on the role of Judicial torturer.
