Classics of military science fiction, the Star Wolf books combine fast-paced action with powerful studies of the military character.
The second installment in the acclaimed Star Wolf trilogy, this tale pits the captain of the limping Star Wolf space vessel against an “imp,” a parasitic biocomputer that is creating havoc and pirating vital information from its position inside the ship. As the imp gathers information to aid the impending attack of the enemy Morthan fleet, Captain Jonathan Korie struggles with both the internal problems caused by the imp, and the threat of an oncoming Morthan attack.
Star Wolf has been consigned to salvage — a fate unbearable to Korie. In a bold act of insubordination, he and his crew work to bring the ship to battle-readiness, unaware of a deadly booby trap on board — and that the Star Wolf may be the only line of defense for one of humanity’s most important strongholds.
