The latest in the Vorkosigan Saga. Some Miles but this is about his mother Cordelia and her getting on with her life after the death of her husband. It's comforting to know these characters you've followed for so long find happiness after the loss of a loved one. It's Bujold therefore it's good. Highly recommended.

Still, “It will never get to an indictment,” Krongard said.
For one, he says, any criminal referral to the Justice Department from the FBI “will have to go through four loyal Democrat women” — Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell, who heads the department’s criminal division; Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates; Attorney General Loretta Lynch; and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Even if they accept the referral, he says, the case quickly and quietly will be plea-bargained down to misdemeanors punishable by fines in a deal similar to the one Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, secured for Gen. David Petraeus. In other words, a big slap on the wrist.

For some reason I missed this when it was released in 2014. The third and last of F. Paul Wilson's Repairman Jack's early years trilogy and probably the last for some time. If that is so, this is a fine end to the series. It's a straight thriller. The supernatural doesn't enter into it. We see how Jack developed into the man he is. He also meets James Bond. Wilson doesn't call him that but that's who he is. It is a run ride, and it is my hope that Wilson will climb back on and give us another sometime soon.
