He wants to be Heinlein. This is not a bad thing, the world that Williamson has created is deep, well thought out and very interesting. In this book, a totalitarian government has framed Kendra Pacelli, and the only place that she has to go is the Freehold world of Grainne. On Grainne there is very little government to speak of and what laws there are, are more guidelines. The United Nations do not like the way that Freehold operates and so they seek to start a war. This is a book about true free market capitalism and libertarianism taken to the extreme. It is well researched and detailed and the book is quite moving and a damn good story. I give a very high recommendation to those who enjoy intelligent and technical military science fiction. ( )
