The year is 2804 AD. Humanity has colonized the universe. But the authority of the Confederation of Human Worlds is spread thin. Where the Army of planet Earth cannot reach, mercenaries must keep the peace--and the Dirigent Mercenary Corps are the best of the best.

Lon Nolan wasn’t supposed to be serving with the DMC. He’d earned his place at the elite North American Military Academy, and he’d excelled there. But when he’s kicked out of the Academy on trumped-up charges, he’s left with no choice: join the DMC or go home.

So join he does, going from top of his class to bottom rung in the DMC. To become an officer, he’ll have to survive his first taste of combat with his new army, and if he fails, he won’t lose just his honor, but his life.

The Dirigent Mercenary Corps books are classics of military science fiction. Rick Shelley was himself a veteran of the U.S. Army, and his experience and knowledge shine through on every page.

"Rick Shelley was a soldier at heart, and his books were written from the heart. They carry the real feel of the sweat, blood, and camaraderie of those on the front lines." --Jack Campbell, author of the bestselling Lost Fleet series.

Rick Shelley
Prince George, Earl of New Britain, was supposed to hold a position of great importance on Buckingham, capital world of the Second Commonwealth. However, Prince George wasn’t on Buckingham. He hadn’t been for seven years, in fact. The Federation War had stranded him on the resort world of Camerein, His Royal Highness little more than a footnote to the long, bitter war.

Newly made Captain David Spencer has proven his worth time and again on the fields of battle. But his latest promotion comes with some strings attached. He’ll have to lead a top secret mission to Camerein, to determine once and for all the fate of Prince George.

Camerein is now in play. With a nearby shuttle crash putting Prince George and the other stranded resort guests on the move, Captain Spencer beginning his search, and the Federation looking for one last bargaining chip for the war’s endgame, the resort world of Camerein is about to host a deadly game of cat and mouse. The future of the Second Commonwealth could rest on who catches whom.

Rick Shelley concludes the Federation War trilogy with another great novel that puts the high tech toys and skilled tactics of David Spencer’s Royal Marines team to use on the home front, bringing every sensation of war home to the reader.
