Memory - Lois McMaster Bujold

Having been dead is bad, it can seriously crimp your spy stylin's.

Especially when the boss finds out. The head of Imperial Security finds out Miles is really not a well bloke, and gives him the arse from his current assignment.

This is seen as an opportunity for some that don't like the current boss to try and get rid of him.

The first bit backfires on those that have targeted the head of Security as Miles finds an old law that lets the Emperor appoint a troubleshooter who can basically order whoever th ehell he likes around. He gets a surprise when said Emperor makes it him. This sort of troublemaking shitekicking certainly suits him as he does the business.
