Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen

(Book 16 in the Vorkosigan series)
A novel by

Three years after her famous husband's death, Cordelia Vorkosigan, widowed Vicereine of Sergyar, spins her life in a new direction. Caught up in her plans in ways they'd never imagined, Oliver Jole, Admiral, Sergyar Fleet, is confronted with an unexpected career crossroads, and Miles Vorkosigan, one of Emperor Gregor's key investigators, dispatches himself on an inquiry he never anticipated -- into the mystery of his own mother.

Plans, wills, and expectations collide in this thoughtful science fiction social comedy, as the impact of galactic technology changes all the old rules, and Oliver and Cordelia must work together to reconcile the past, the present, and the future.
