Product Description: In the twilight of the Terran Empire, one man exists who can save his crooked empire – and civilization itself – by hook or by crook, whether his 'betters' appreciate his efforts or not. Flandry is both agent of empire, and agent-provocateur of change. For even as he fights for the old guard, Flandry remains well aware that change is afoot and that he has the ability to influence the direction of galactic civilization for eons to come.
The fourth entry in the seven-volume complete cycle of The Technic Civilization Saga includes Ensign Flandry, A Circus of Hells and The Rebel Worlds.
