A St Cyr mystery is always something to look forward to and this new addition to the series is no exception. The development of the relationship between St Cyr and Hero, his new wife is particularly enjoyable. It is good to see her continuing to develope her own identity.
As an avid reader of the Vorkosigan Saga I wanted to read this novella to tie togther several of the novels. It makes a few issues in later novels (in sequence) understandable. It is also a fun story of the love affair of the hero and his future wife. Highly recommended!!
