Book Two of The VATICAN ASSASSIN TRILOGY. The UIN's Christmas raid of 2109 - the latest battle in their long-running war with the UTZ - left great changes in its wake. As VATICAN AMBASSADOR opens, BC finds his world turned upside down - he's turned from assassin to potential peacemaker by the new Pope, who truly seems unaware of BC's previous function. BC tries to help Governor Marc Edwards rebuild Lunar Prime as he puts his own life back together, but soon discovers his knowledge of the world to be far more limited than he could have guessed. Triple agents, scientific enclaves on interstellar outposts, alien neighbors and interlopers... BC will find himself forced to consider a much broader frame of reference...
