Tales From the Clarke by John Scalzi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Poor Capt Coloma is having a trying time. Since her ship the Clarke was involved in averting a war & is sent to scrap, she's been through an inquiry & gets a new assignment in this installment. Of course, it's not what it appears to be in the beginning & what should be a simple enough opportunity to sell a ship to a contingent from Earth turns into another twist in the story skein. Of all the problems that unfold, the fact that the people from Earth are probably not who they say they are exactly is of great concern. And it's Wilson who uncovers this quizzical situation in an unintentional way via the Cubs. I really loved that. What follows in revelation made me as nonplussed with her commanding officers as Capt Coloma but she did get something she wanted (more or less) in the end. Can't wait for the next.
