As a young doctor with a beautiful family and a promising medical career, Dr. Leonard McCoy thought he had it all. But when the woman he loved betrayed him, McCoy fled to Starfleet, hoping to lose his pain in the depths of space. Now, more than forty years later, the EnterpriseTM and her crew are ordered to transport a group of mediators to the planet Ssan, a world where assassination is a time-honored tradition, and McCoy is surprised to learn that his ex-wife, now remarried, is one of the mediators. And before he can come to terms with his conflicted feelings for his former love, she and Captain Kirk are trapped on Susan, and McCoy is caught in an explosive civil war, the only one with the power to save the woman who once nearly destroyed him.

I read this book exclusively because i heard it was about McCoy, because im a HUGE McCoy fan, and i was not dissapointed! I was a little dissapointed because of what happened to one of the characters at the end, i wont spoil it for anyone, but honestly, i think it makes it a better story, more like real life... if real life involved aliens and space doctors

I loved this book. I have read it numerous times since I first found it many years ago. (The info says it was first published in 2002, but I remember reading it in high school in the 90's)(I've been using the "pen-name/screen name" of one of the characters since long before 2002). I thought the idea of a society that used sanctioned assasination to control it's population was a little far fetched at first, but the way that the idea is used made it interesting. This would be a good book for anyone who enjoys Star Trek or Sci-Fi in general. It's well worth picking up.

Just a great book! I love the way the author makes the added characters, mainly Jocelyn 'Sorry if that's spelled wrong' The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of the story in the middle of the book when McCoy's just out of Starfleet. I just didn't like the way he made McCoy, I wouldn't see him making that mistake or getting mixed up in that sort of thing'You'll know what I'm talking about if you read it' But other than that, this is a awsome book. Really well written!

At first I thought this would be an okay book. However, this was actually an enjoyable read. Although it jumps to the past (to show Dr. Leonard McCoy's early days in Starfleet Medical and his mariage), these passages are well-written and easy to understand. The dialogue and actions of the command crew feel like true to the series and the motion pictures.
