Now in an omnibus edition, the Hostile Takeover trilogy introduces a planet where the only laws are those of self-preservation and profit.

Bakunin is a world with a law unto itself—the only human-colonized planet that has consistently refused to join the Terran Confederacy or permit any form of organized government to take root. When the TEC, the covert operations and enforcement branch of the Confederacy, decides to do something about Bakunin, Colonel Klaus Dacham is the man they put in charge. His opening target is Dominic Magnus, the head of Godwin Arms and Armament.

Though Dom loses the first battle, he, his allies, and his surviving employees carefully plan their own return strike. Until they receive a desperate message from one of their own, revealing what the TEC is really up to on Bakunin.

Suddenly, the stakes are far beyond personal revenge. Bakunin is about to become an unwitting pawn in a Confederacy-wide power struggle. And to the mastermind behind the entire plan, it doesn’t really matter whether anyone on the planet is left alive at the end of it—so long as TEC achieves its goal.
