I'm afraid I wasn't impressed. Half the book was a non-Trek story whose inclusion was justified only by wormhole magic. The assassination stuff was underwhelming too - it was immediately obvious that Enkar didn't do it or at the very least was manipulated into it, but the crew seemed almost apathetic about finding out who was really responsible. And considering the technology available to them, why wasn't there a forcefield between the podium and the people? Didn't they learn anything from STVI? I was also surprised that the event was locked down and news prevented from leaving the station for awhile. I'd assumed the speeches at such an unprecedented gathering of heads of state would have been broadcast live throughout the quadrant.
I like the new DS9 station. But instead of the Hub, I think they should run it from the park, sitting in the grass using iPads
