Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Paul Sinclair and the good ship USS Michaelson are back in another absorbing and credible novel of space navies and justice. Shortly after the Michaelson's captain is changed and a Lieutenant Silver reports aboard, an engineering accident kills a chief petty officer and does major damage. Suspicion falls on Silver's happy-go-sloppy ways, but there is little proof, and he is the son of a vice-admiral. Moreover, Captain Kay Shen, father of Silver's lover, Jen Shen, conducts the initial investigation that exonerates Silver, and he is fiercely protective of his daughter. Sinclair is walking through a personal and professional minefield as he tries to assemble a trail of evidence sufficient to bring Silver before a court-martial. Fortunately, he enlists enough capable allies to ultimately obtain justice. Hemry's series continues to offer outstanding suspense, realism, and characterization, and this book, no less than its predecessor, A Just Determination [BKL Ap 15 03], only ratchets up readers' appetites for more. First-rate military sf. Roland Green

Review

Praise for Burden of Proof

"Absorbing and credible . . . Outstanding suspense, realism, and characterization . . . First-rate military SF." --Booklist

"John G. Hemry cements his position as the best writer of legalistic military science fiction working today.” --Rambles

"A rock-solid courtroom drama . . . Hemry builds the story's suspense expertly . . . This one will keep you turning the pages with the proverbial bated breath." --SF Reviews

"Perfectly capturing the rapid-fire give-and-take and dramatic arguments of shows like Law & Order . . . and throwing in the solid characterization of classic Robert A. Heinlein, the story moves at a fast pace . . . A must for any military-SF fan." --SF Site
