I've enjoyed the Dark Age series well enough, but after reading this book I had to ask myself... is this Battletech/Mechwarrior? This is basically a detective story, does not relate to the Dark Age storyline in any significant way, and the whole book could just as easily be set in any setting. I've re-read almost the entire series, but skipped over this one book because it has no relevance in the Battletech universe.
