"Undercurrents" is the second novel in Robert Buettner's hard-hitting military science fiction "Orphan's Legacy" series! Ace intelligence operative Lt. Jazen Parker parachutes into Tressel, a planet which resembles Earth in its Paleozoic era, on a mission to bring down the local politicos. He quickly realizes he's been handed a near-impossible task. Tressel is a politically-quarantined nightmare world with a culture confined to iron rivet technology and a ruling regime a bit to the right of Heinrich Himmler. Jazen's inclined to abandon this particular hellhole to its ways - that is, until he uncovers a plot afoot that will throw a five hundred-planet alliance into the death-throes of anarchy!
