Book 16 of 16: EMPIRE
A DEADLY NEW PLOT AGAINST THE THRONE!
Two assassination attempts against the Throne have failed spectacularly in the last five years. One by Sector Governor Piotr Shubin and the other by the plutocratic ruling families of the old Democracy of Planets.
All that has resulted from the families' failed attempt to assassinate Empress Arsinoe is the families' spies being caught, the families' allies being recruited to the Throne, and much of the families' wealth being confiscated.
So the plutocratic ruling families of the old Democracy of Planets hatch a new, simpler plan to overthrow the Empire. Nuke Imperial City!
Troy Donahue and Travis Geary race to find and disable the nuke, while the Emperor and Empress contemplate a draconian final solution to the plutocrat families.
