A Bodyguard of Lies

A Bodyguard of Lies

Assigned to the halls of power, only Capt. Tomas Neumann can save the Confederated Worlds from the ultimate treachery

Capt. Tomas Neumann faces shocking dangers in an unexpected new
battlefield.

Assigned to the Confederated Worlds’ capital planet, Tomas works to
rebuild the military’s confidence after the last war. He has no interest
in politics.

But after saving the Confederated Worlds’ next president from an
assassin, politics becomes interested in him.

Gone are the familiar lines between friend and foe. In the halls of
power, Tomas plunges into a world of secrets and lies.

Worse, he soon discovers a terrifying conspiracy threatening far more
than his career, his family, or even his life. He finds a shocking truth
capable of destroying the Confederated Worlds.

Battling spies and pervasive surveillance, Tomas takes shadowy
journeys from luxurious temples to secret police brain scanning
chambers. The fate of the galaxy will hinge on his ability to tell
allies from enemies. To tell loyalists from traitors.

And remain true to his principles, as a soldier and a man.

Military science fiction meets political thriller in the triumphant
conclusion to the Confederated Worlds trilogy.
