Cover copy

 The Kilrathi Empire is in a bind. For the last five years they have
been constructing a secret fleet so powerful that it will slice
straight through to Earth and destroy the Confederation. There is
a problem, however: the Confederation has become increasingly
successful with its behind-the-line raids and the Prince fears that
before the new fleet is ready, the Empire will be on the ropes.
 At a Kilrathi council of war a simple solution is agreed upon: sue
for peace, lull the humans into disarming and then when all is
ready, launch a surprise offensive.
 True to the tradition of democracies everywhere, the Confeder-
ation falls for it; the military stands down. Luckily for the human
race, however, there are a few people who don't trust soft words from a
Kilrathi mouth. Admiral Tolwyn and his veterans must fight a de-
laying action, buying time with their lives for humanity to make
ready for the final battle....
