I have enjoyed many of Frank Herbert's stories, but this one is rather poor. As another reviewer said, the good guys were too busy protecting their legal hides to really go after the bad guys. There were hints of a complex universe, but it felt like wasted space in the story.
The narration was good, the story was poor.

This book doesn't even deserve the one star which I've given it. It seems like at least half the book is human characters communicating with aliens telepathically, yet the conversations get hung up on English words with multiple definitions. If that's not enough to make you avoid the book, try this: the main characters are hunting a villain who is going to end all sentient life in the universe within days, yet they keep tip-toeing around what the villain's lawyers might do in response to their actions. Since it's a relatively short book, I decided to finish it, hoping there might be some interesting twist at the end, but I was disappointed once again.

This isn't Dune, it's something very different and wonderful. A glance into a future like none before. A story you must keep reading, just to find out what the hell is going on.
Great narration by Brick.
