Hollow Men

I have just begun to read Hollow Men, a novel by my mate altariel. This is a Deep Space Nine novel. I quote from the Amazon synopsis.

What began as a desperate attempt to save lives became a descent into an abyss of deception, moral compromise and outright criminal acts.

Ah, yes, the reassuring sound of moral certainty being shredded. It is both well written and psychological. A particular recommendation for lovers of John Le Carre and shades of grey. More when I've read it all.

EDIT - there is a glowing review here

Speaking as someone with only a vague knowledge of DS9, the novel is accessible.
