Summary

Four hundred years in the future, the most dangerous criminals are kept in suspended animation aboard prison ships and 'rehabilitated' in a shared virtual reality environment. But Miska Storrow, a thief and hacker with a background in black ops, has stolen one of these ships, the Hangman's Daughter, and made it her own.
Controlled by explosive collars and trained in virtual reality by the electronic ghost of a dead marine sergeant, the thieves, gangsters, murderers, and worse are transformed into Miska's own private indentured army: the Bastard Legion.
In Friendly Fire, the Bastard Legion are hired to pull off a daring power-armoured heist of propriety tech. Getting the tech will be hard. Getting off the planet, deadly.

Fun, added depth, expanded lore, great series

Following on from the previous book, Miska is once again continuing her rampaging (technically a cover for her careful investigation in to her dad’s death). This book seemed more action packed than the last version, but like with the Hangman’s Daughter, the action happens for reasons, and there are still respites in action giving character's a chance to reflect upon things.
Several of the prisoners get more of the story’s spotlight. I’ll avoid spoilers, but the story absolutely makes things more personal for some of them, which affects the squad, and their understandable paranoia about their chances of survival. Building upon the previous book, and my comparison to something like Gaunt’s Ghosts in regards to character death, and the impact upon the mission and the individuals is quite evident in this book.
Whilst there are big questions still outstanding, which given this is a series that makes sense and should be expected, I felt this book added more depth to the book’s universe. By the end of the book I felt more connections to past events a lot had been added to the setting, and whilst some readers may question this part way through, I think the story builds towards proving this point at the end.
In summary, Fun story, added character depth, expanded lore, and an ending that left me intrigued to know what happens next.
