Product Description: Three science fiction novels together for the first time from Under Jurisdiction series by Susan R. Matthews. The second of two series omnibus volumes following Fleet Inquisitor. This volume includes series entries Hour of Judgment, The Devil and Deep Space, and Warring States. Fleet Renegade will be followed by the new Under Jurisdiction novel Blood Enemies.
Hour of Judgment: Burkhayden is a subject colony, leased by the Bench to a Dolgorukij familial corporation for economic exploitation. When a Nurail woman from the service house is brutally raped and beaten, Andrej Koscuisko–-Ship's Inquisitor on board the Jurisdiction Fleet Ship Ragnarok–-is called upon to render services under contract. Before one fateful night is out Andrej Koscuisko will put himself under sentence of death by doing what he realizes at last he should have done from the beginning. And Port Burkhayden will burn.
