Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nobody does martial arts/action/sci-fi novels better than Steve Perry, and even when he's not at his best, his work is still well worth reading. This book does a good job of adding more human depth to the excessively-muscled Bork of the other Matador novels.
The story focuses on Bork's life, his history with his father, and his search for a sense of self-worth as he encounters an opponent who might finally be able to beat his physical strength.... Of course, you're probably not looking for introspection when you read a Matador novel, so you may feel the angst detracts from the action. I know I did.
For more background to some of the more obscure references in the novel, see if you can track down the Omega Cage.

Brother Death is the eighth book in the Matador Series but could be read first . They include:

1) The Man Who Never Missed 1985

2) Matadora 1986

3) The Machiavelli Interface 1986

4) The Omega Cage 1988

5) The 97th Step 1989

6) The Albino Knife 1991

7) Black Steel 1992

8) Brother Death 1992

9) The Mushashi Flex 2006

Brother Death being a back story.

Perry writes fun-to-read books, while you're waiting for John Ringo's latest book to come out.

This was trite in comparison to the previous novels, and Bork's introspection isn't enough to carry the whole book. The Matadora Trilogy(ish) had a lot of depth for space opera, which made it very enjoyable... I was disappointed with Brother Death - however, I'm still looking for a copy of Albino Knife, so I couldn't have been THAT disappointed... :)

i am a fan of the matadors books, but for sure this is the one i liked less

i found the story, and the develpoment of the characters poorl executed

for example in other books of the matadora he is well balanced emotionally and in psichology against steel that is much lees
but in this book it seems that he has to prove too much that he is simply stronger phisically than is opponent, and by stronger i mean pure strenght not martial arts
