Today's book review is Some Golden Harbor by David Drake.
This is book 5 in the Lieutenant Leary series. The story is pretty much self contained, but it only refers briefly to things in the recurring characters' backgrounds, rather than fully explaining them. Better to start at the beginning.
I finished this book a couple of days ago, and I find that enough of it didn't stick as it went whizzing by that I can't really explain it. It's fairly entertaining space opera, but there are some things that are getting tiresomely repetitive. I wouldn't go so far as to say the series has jumped the shark, but I think this is a weaker book than the earlier ones. 6 out of 10.
