The #3 mass market edition of the classic science fiction of A. Bertram Chandler's John Grimes books, with multiple interrelated stories and two full novels in this renowned SF saga. Pipe-smoking, action-loving spaceship commander John Grimes (think Captain Kirk with more of a navy, salty attitude) retires from heroic days in Earth's space navy to become a merchant captain extraordinaire and a force to reckon with on the galactic frontier.
Number three in a three-volume collection of the legendary John Grimes of the Galactic Rim series. If space travel is going to be anything like sailing the oceans, then A. Bertram Chandler has surely caught its absolute essence in his Grimes novels. Here are the crowning tales of Grimes' career - the Grimes "Rim Commodore" stories. In these tales, Grimes has found his true calling out on the edge of galactic civilization. He's the sheriff of a realm where pioneer colonies and parallel dimensions overlap, and a starship captain must be prepared for adventure in ALL possible worlds.
Includes an astounding (as in, mostly published in Astounding and Analog by legendary editor John W. Campbell) cornucopia of Grimes novels bringing together all previous Commodore Grimes tales inStar Courier, To Keep the Ship, Matilda's Stepchildren, Star Loot.
About A. Bertram Chandler and the John Grimes series:
"SF's answer to Horatio Hornblower." -Publishers Weekly
"As Asimov chronicled the Foundation, as Heinlein built his Future History, so Chandler constructs the epic of the Rim Worlds." -Analog
"[Grimes] establishes a loyalty in his readers rather similar to that felt by readers of Hornblower. Indeed [Chandler's] space operas are among the most likeable and well constructed in the genre. . . ." -The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction

Approached to crack a safe by the owner's suspicious wife, reformed hacker Henrietta 'Harry' Martinez can't resist the challenge. Now her client's absconded with a fortune in diamonds, leaving Harry sole witness to a brutal murder. And next in line for a ruthless assassin who doesn't like loose ends.
The police are unconvinced, suspicious of Harry's past, and not even an attempt on her life can sway them. It's up to Harry to track down her mystery client. The trail leads from a top racing yard to a smuggling operation in the illegal South Africa world of conflict diamonds.
To get to the truth requires all her secret skills. But in a business populated by bloodthirsty mercenaries and financed by ruthless exploitation, how can Harry, alone and abroad, pull off her most audacious heist ever?
