It was the fifth book published in the series, and is the twelfth story, including novellas, in the internal chronology of the series. Brothers in Arms was first published by Baen Books in January , [1] and is included in the omnibus Miles Errant. Shortly after rescuing thousands of prisoners of war from the Cetagandans, as detailed in the novella " Borders of Infinity ", Admiral Miles Naismith and his Dendarii mercenaries arrive on Earth, fleeing Cetagandan retribution and needing to repair the resultant damage to their ships.

Miles visits the Barrayaran Embassy in London to obtain payment for their last mission. He reports to Captain Duv Galeni, his Imperial Security superior and a Komarran whose aunt was one of the victims of an infamous massacre of civilians allegedly committed by Miles' father. Galeni later mysteriously disappears.

During his wait, Miles is abducted, and his place taken by a clone created and trained as an assassin by Komarran diehards determined to free their planet.

The Komarrans are led by Ser Galen, Galeni's own father who had been presumed killed while fighting against the Barrayarans.

Miles is locked up with Galeni, who has been interrogated using drugs, but has resisted attempts by his father to get him to join the Komarran resistance.

Miles himself gets a dose of fast-penta , the truth drug used in related stories, but his reaction to it is idiosyncratic. Instead of becoming docile, he becomes manic, reciting military manuals, poems and plays from memory to beat the interrogation. Meeting his clone, Miles tells him that he could claim his rights as Miles's brother under Betan law. Just before Miles and Galeni are to be executed, they are rescued by his Dendarii subordinate and lover Elli Quinn.

Galen captures Vorpatril and uses him to force a tense meeting in the bowels of the Thames Barrier with Miles, who unexpectedly brings along Galeni. Galen disarms them, then orders the clone to kill Miles. However, the talks Miles has had with his clone bear fruit. The clone shoots and kills Galen instead, then flees. Complicating matters are Cetagandan and Barrayaran assassination squads targeting Naismith and the clone, respectively , a Dendarii contingent and the local police, all converging on their location.

Miles, with his usual tactical wizardry, is able to get himself, his clone, Vorpatril and Galeni safely away. As an added bonus, Miles arranges for the Cetagandans see him and his clone together, "proving" that Naismith and Vorkosigan are not the same person. By Betan law, the clone is Miles' brother, and Miles is well aware his Betan mother would be greatly displeased if he got rid of his troublesome new sibling.

According to Barrayaran tradition, his brother would be named Mark Pierre Vorkosigan. Miles gives the psychologically scarred "Mark" a considerable sum of money and an invitation to claim his Barrayaran heritage, if he wants to—or dares—then lets him go. The delay in payment of the Dendarii funds is revealed to be due to one of Galen's agents on Tau Ceti. As Miles prepares to leave Earth, his mentor in the Dendarii, Ky Tung, announces his retirement to live with his people in Brazil, leaving Miles to run the mercenary fleet himself.

Tung also lets slip that he knew about Miles's double identity all along. Jo Walton , writing at Tor. James Nicoll commended Bujold's choice not to depict future Earth as a dystopia , and noted that Ser Galen's plan failed because it "require d many complicated events to happen in the right order at the right time.

Brothers in Arms

Miles Vorkosigan is having enough trouble keeping his two identities separate—the charismatic Admiral Naismith of the Denarii Mercenary Fleet and a Vor lord of the Barrayan aristocracy—when assassination attempts begin. As if things weren't bad enough, the problem of split identities becomes even more confused when a clone of Miles is discovered. Highly recommended.
