I’m thrilled to be able to share the approved cover art for my upcoming Star Trek: Section 31 novel, Control.
I love the color of it, which speaks to the blood-soaked action in the story, and the overall look and feel, which were conceived to visually link it to my previous Section 31 novel, Disavowed. Though my input was considered by the editors and production department, this work of fierce beauty is the creation of Gallery Books art director Alan Dingman.
For the curious, the story of Control is a direct sequel to Disavowed, which was part of my ongoing chronicle of Julian Bashir’s shadow war against the illegal covert operations group known as Section 31. If you’re keen to know more about this long-running story arc, see the list of “Related Novels” in the sidebar of the page for Control.
Here is the back-cover copy from the book:
Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, and answerable to no one, Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division of Starfleet, a rogue shadow group pledged to defend the Federation at any cost.
The discovery of a 200-year-old secret gives Doctor Julian Bashir his best chance yet to expose and destroy the illegal spy organization. But his foes won’t go down without a fight, and his mission to protect the Federation might end up triggering its destruction.
Only one thing is for certain: this time, the price of victory will be paid with Bashir’s dearest blood.
