The Vatican Assassin - Bernard Campion, aka "BC" - used to kill for the Pope. But the old pope is dead. Seemingly unaware of BC's role, the new one names BC acting Vatican Ambassador to Lunar Prime! Can BC build peace between the Universal Islamic Nation (UIN), the Universal Trade Zone (UTZ) and the New catholic Church (NcC)? What is the mysterious "Project"? And do aliens really want us all dead?
Book Two of The Vatican Assassin Trilogy. The UIN's Christmas raid of 2109 - the latest battle in their long-running war with the UTZ - left great changes in its wake. BC's world is upside down, converted from assassin to potential peacemaker by a new Pope. BC tries to help Governor Marc Edwards rebuild Lunar Prime as he puts his own life back together, but soon discovers his world had been far more limited than he could have guessed. Triple agents, scientific enclaves on interstellar outposts, alien neighbors and interlopers - BC will soon find himself forced to consider a much broader frame of reference!
