Hunting the Hunters

Major Loren Jaffray is a soldier's soldier, a hardened professional who made his reputation with the Capellan Confederation's legendary Death Commandos. Now serving as an officer in the Northwind Highlanders, Loren longs to prove his loyalty to his new comrades. And he's getting that chance--the Draconis Combine is hiring his regiment to take on a mission unlike any before it.

The ruthless Clan Smoke Jaguar emulate the savagery of their feline namesake with lethal accuracy. Nobody knows this better than the Draconis Combine, who fought to the death to save their very homeworld. Now Loren's crack Highlanders will be the instrument of the Combine's vengeance, striking into the Deep Periphery to crush one of the Jaguars' supply centers on a distant world called Wayside V. But the young, confident major is in for a very nasty surprise--and unless he makes a brilliant change in plans, Wayside V will be soaked with Scots blood...
