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 he loves 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.
THE HARROWING NEW THRILLER BY
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
“This latest Star Trek novel is incredibly fast-paced and exciting. … Mack has developed an impressive story line of intrigue and suspense. My favorite Kirk quote certainly fits here: ‘I take it the odds are against us; and the situation is grim.’ I thoroughly enjoyed this thrilling novel with a surprising finale.”
“Mack wrote Bashir so well that I could hear Alexander Siddig’s voice in my head as I read, and the same was true for the many other familiar characters that take part in the narrative in surprising ways.”
“Control is a fast-paced, high-stakes, plot-driven book that explores questions that Star Trek needs to deal with. It dives into these issues in interesting ways, and rewards careful attention to the ethical discussions within. … [It is] a thinking reader’s action thriller that holds your attention from the first page to the last.”
“[A] masterful spy thriller in the vein of Three Days of the Condor…”
“ ‘Heartbreaking’ might be the word best to describe Control’s epilogue.”
“[Control] is an incredibly fast paced story that is so Orwellian in nature that it can be quite disturbing…”
“[T]he action starts with the opening pages and moves at a breakneck pace to the end with almost no time to catch one’s breath between scenes.”
“I give this book my highest recommendations and can honestly say that it is one of the best Star Trek books I have ever read.”
