Reading the old Howard Weinstein novel The Covenant of the Crown. It's a short one with a pretty simple premise. Not a whole lot of substance in this one.
Actually, for one of the short novels from that era, it's got plenty of substance -- great character work for the Spock-McCoy pair and for Kirk separately, and some nice ruminations about the nature of leadership. It's always been a favorite of mine.
