Castro, Adam-Troy -- The Third Claw of God

Second book about Andrea Cort, political troubleshooter and draftee in a number of wars, some of them invisible. As with Emissaries From the Dead, this is a formal murder mystery -- a classic bottled-up-with-all-the-suspects setup -- which is also a powerful character story and a political thriller. The series plot-arc bumps along more steps than you might expect, too. Is it hyperbolic to give Adam-Troy Castro as the answer to "who is the new Bujold?" Maybe, but I'll stand behind it.
