Steele's Hammer is the first volume in the action-filled, military SF series, The Glory Game. Ex-Captain Damascus 'Mac The Knife' Steele has been offered the position of Captain of an armed freighter by an ex-admiral who has a reputation of being reckless. The mission is to liberate a colony world that has been taken over by space pirates who may not be what they seem to be. If Steele takes the job, his ship would be outnumbered and outgunned. This may be Steele's last chance to restore his tarnished reputation as a space officer. What could possibly go wrong?
