Mitchell, Sandy  
Warhammer 40,000: Ciaphas Cain #1 / #2 / #3: Hero of the Imperium: For the Emperor / Caves of Ice / The Traitor's Hand
Plus short stories 'Fight or Flight', 'Echoes of the Tomb', and 'The Beguiling'. Commissar Ciaphas Cain is respected by his peers and an inspiration to his men - if you believe the propaganda. In reality, Ciaphas is looking for an easy life and a way to stay out of peril, but fate has a habit of throwing him into the deadliest situations. To survive, he must dodge, bluff and trick his way out of trouble, while luck (mixed with self preservation) manages to pull him through and onto the loftiest of pedestals.
