The war has raged for nearly a year and Earth desperately needs an edge to overcome the Sirian Empire’s huge advantage in personnel and equipment. That’s where James Mowry comes in. Intensively trained, his appearance surgically altered, Mowry secretly lands on one of the Empire’s planets. His mission: to sap morale, cause mayhem, tie up resources, and wage a one-man war on a planet of 80 million–in short, to be like the wasp buzzing around a car to distract the driver…and causing him to crash.

I really got into this story. It had a bit of a golden age of sci-fi feel to it, which was great, and was well paced and fun to boot. I haven’t read anything of this author before: an error I must fix!
