Honor Harrington has faced ship-to-ship combat, assassins, political vendettas and duels. She's been shot at, shot down, and just plain shot; had starships blown out from under her, and made personal enemies who will do anything to ruin her, and she's survived it all. Now she finds herself on board a battlecruiser bound for a prison planet aptly named "Hell" - and her scheduled execution. Put into solitary confinement, separated from her officers and her treecat Nimitz, and subjected to systematic humiliation by her gaolers, her future has become both bleak and short. Yet the one lesson Honor Harrington has never learned is how to give up ...… (mere)

This is the episode when Honor is captured by the Peeps. Unfortunately, she isn't being treated as a military officer as the old charges from Basilisk have been resurrected and she is condemned to die.

Cordelia Ransom, who is the Peep's propaganda expert, is along and looks at Honor's capture as a terrific opportunity to gain positive publicity for her regime. No matter what her Naval officers try to convince her to do, she is determined. She has come to believe that her own skewed version of reality is actually reality. The Naval officers know that what she intends will have bad consequences for the Peeps in the form of bad publicity and lack of the secret support the Peeps have been getting from the Solarian League which is the only thing that is allowing them to keep up with the Manticorans and their allies. These actions will also have a bad effect on the Peeps' own navy too as shown by the two major Peeps military people who get swept up in Ransom's plotting.

Meanwhile, Honor is being badly treated by her captors from State Security. She has had her prosthetics disconnected which leaves her looking like a stroke victim and having vision in only one eye. She has been separated from Nimitz who was also badly injured.

But her own people aren't going to give up despite being prisoners themselves. And Horace Harkness finally gets to shine as he professes his allegiance to the Peeps and then subverts their computer system and plans the daring escape but not before they reach the prison planet known as Hell.

This was an exciting episode. I'm very glad that the next one is queued up for my next listening experience. ( )

Not very surprisingly I didn't really like this one vey much. Not only do I not like the concept of Harrington surrendering but the book was, for large parts, bloody slow. ( )

One thing about reading a long-standing series is that you have a clue about the final disposition of the major character. (With David Weber, one cannot say major characters don't get killed, that is for sure.) Still, my heart was in my mouth more than once. And this book deserves a tissue warning.

There is little I can write about this book without spoilers. I think part of the underlying theme is how people behave at the height of triumph and the pit of defeat. Those can be defining moments and indeed refining ones. In Enemy Hands does an excellent job in this exploration.

Start at the beginning of the series of this excellent science fiction saga. ( )
