Product description

From the Back Cover


Polar city: capital of Hagar, one of a handful of worlds on which the tiny, human-dominated Republic sits, uneasily squeezed between the powerful Interstellar Confederation and the enormous Coreward Alliance.

When a suspected alien spy from the Confederation Embassy is found murdered, a potentially explosive political situation faces Police Chief Bates. And when talented psychic Mulligan is brought to the scene to pick up echoes of the event, what he experiences sends him into amnesiac shock.

Meanwhile, murders continue unabated and a major crisis threatens to destabilise the Republic…


is an immensely colourful and highly innovative science fiction first for Katharine Kerr. Cyberpunk, 'noir' thriller, otherworldly intrigue – all the elements are here in this fast-paced, action-packed, thought-provoking adventure.

"There's cops, there's drugrunners, there's whores and pimps…There's a weird bacterium, a lot of computer jockeying, and even more politics; there's detective work, social commentary and lots of action. It's a strong soup and a hell of a lot of fun. You should buy this one."

About the Author

Katharine Kerr was born in Ohio and moved to San Francisco Bay Area in 1962, where she has lived ever since. She has read extensively in the fields of classical archeology, and medieval and dark ages history and literature, and these influences are clear in her work. Her epic Deverry series has won widespread praise and millions of fans around the world.
