Book Summary: a space cruiser missing under suspicious circumstances

Sci Fi Categories: Aliens, Space Adventure, Violence

Book Description: This story, "The Madman from Earth", is also known as "Policy", and is included in the first book of Retief stories, Envoy to New Worlds (1963). Baen Publishing's Retief! (2002) includes the first four Retief books, so this story is also there. Administrative Assistant Meuhl attempts to dominate Retief into being a normal diplomat. Retief does his own thing, seeking a terrestrial cruiser lost 10 years earlier, and of course, engineers a coup via strategy and muscle, as only Retief can.
