The popular adventures of Miles Vorkosigan, a clever and outlandish science fiction hero for the modern era, continue in these three tales. In “The Mountains of Mourning,” Miles is dispatched to a backcountry region of Barrayar, where he must act as detective, judge, and executioner in a controversial murder case.

In “Labyrinth,” Miles adopts his alternate persona as Dendarii Mercenary Admiral Naismith for an undercover mission to rescue an important research geneticist from Jackson’s Whole.

And in the title story, Miles infiltrates an escape-proof Cetagandan POW camp and plays hero to the most deeply distressed damsel of his colorful career.

    " Miles is recuperating from having replacement surgery for his fragile bone. Simon comes to get the details on reports and accounting for the Dendarii. This is an excuse for some flashbacks. He remembers the Mountains of Mourning where a woman comes to his father for justice when her newborn is killed due to the mutation of a harelip. Miles father sends Miles to be his Voice. Messenger and message delivered in a way to that can not be ignored that times had changed. Simon asks Miles to go over his pick up of a Jackson Whole scientist, but end up rescuing two others. Simon then asks about Dagoola, where Miles lets himself be captured and sent to a Cetagandan prison to rescue a prisoner and ends up rescuing everyone (10,000). A prisoner Sargent asks if Miles is for real. The religious zealot replies blandly " He thinks he's faking it, but he's not. He's the One, all right and tight." A lot of insights into love, revenge, winning. "

    " I really loved this book when I first read it, and still loved it after re-listening to it. Actually, listening to someone reading it adds a new depth to the story of Miles and I enjoyed it a lot. All the stories in this collection are not exactly "happy" stories, but leave you with something that makes you contemplate on the importance of "how" you live your life... "
