There is only one thing that Jefferson Nighthawk, the original Widowmaker, really wanted to do and that was retire on a far away planet and raise a garden. There were still two clones of him to keep the peace and carry on his legend. Unfortunately for him, his two clones have come to a disagreement. When a widowmaker takes on a widowmaker everyone runs for cover. There is only one man who can stand up to the clones of the Widowmaker... the Widowmaker himself.

This one was a "fun read". As in the previous books in this series, Mike Resnick creates an interesting story with great characters. You can can expect more action as you have three widowmakers in this story along with some fun bad guys. Recommended for any SF action fans. 4 stars. Read full review
