Another great Cain story
Been following the books, as a fan of the comissar gaunt and Eisenhorn, can recommend and also the audio book is complete. So ignore the previous reviews.
The emperor protects.
It’s perfect but it’s incomplete!
The audio book breaks off around 100 pages before the end of the story!
The story is great, Cain’s exploits as entertaining as ever. The problem with the end being missing has now been resolved.
