|Plot Summary of Exchange of Hostages|
|"Andrej Koscuisko becomes a doctor so that he can heal and help people. His father forces him to train as a Ship's Surgeon, where one of his duties will be to conduct Inquisitions, or a series of levels of torture to be applied to suspected criminals which will force them to confess to their crimes. A very intense, difficult read, but Andrej is so sympathetic--moving from compassion to monster--that it is also a very worthwhile book."
Christine G., Resident Scholar
