A stand-alone novel set in Susan R. Matthews's critically acclaimed "Judiciary" universe, Angel of Destruction focuses on Bench officer Garol Vogel and his attempts to make peace with the Langsarik people-the people his own Judiciary drove into a life of piracy.

"[Matthews] brilliantly uses science fiction's freedom of creation." (The Denver Post)
"Matthews will stand out in a field dominated (in numbers if not in stature) by mediocre imitators." (Analog)
While there was much less Andrej than I've become accustomed to -- missed his conflicted self --- this was still a very good read. Really fleshes out some of the characters introduced in the Andrej books, especially Vogel.
"More of Andrej's World"
This novels fills in, with rich detail, Andrej's world and gives us some other semi-heroes to cheers for.
Garol's realization of the set-up.
As always, very well written. Matthews can really turn a phrase and set a scene.
