SHADOWS ON THE SUN

By: Michael Jan Friedman

As a young doctor with a beautiful family and a
promising medical career, Dr. 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 U.S.S. Enterprise and her crew are ordered to
transport a group of mediators to the planet Ssan,
a world where assassination is a long and time honored tradition.

Dr. McCoy is surprised to learn that his ex-wife, now
remarried, is one of the mediators.  But before
McCoy can begin to face his feelings for his former
love, she and Captain Kirk are trapped by a band of
deadly assassins.  Suddenly, McCoy is in the center
of an explosive civil war, where he is the only one
with the power to save the woman who once nearly
destroyed him.  McCoy must now overcome a
centuries long tradition of death, and his own past
with the woman he still loves, or else lose her for
the second time . . .



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


We finally get to meet McCoy's ex-wife!

It was never mentioned in the TV series, but it's
generally accepted that McCoy joined Starfleet because
his wife left him.  We've never known the details before,
but thanks to Mr. Friedman, now we do!

Michael Jan Friedman is one of the top Trek authors
and he continues his excellent writing with this story.

An entertaining book that I'm sure you'll enjoy!
