In this noir thriller set on the interstellar Quadrail,
former government agent Frank Compton can't catch a break.
After a successful mission against the Modhri, the coral
polyp-based group mind that is attempting to take over the
galaxy, Frank arrives at his New York apartment. A young
woman is waiting for him, pointing a gun at his face. She
tells him that someone on New Tigris is holding her ten-
year-old sister. Compton takes her gun and orders her out,
only to be rousted out of bed and accused of her brutal
After Frank's ally Bruce McMicking posts his bail, Frank
travels to New Tigris with his assistant, Bayta, and
locates the sister, who is part of a key resistance group
that is fighting the Modhri throughout the galaxy. Compton
must get the girl to a hidden refuge planet via the
Quadrail to ensure the continued efforts of the resistance.
But can he do it before the Modhri gets to her first?
Compelling characters, hard-boiled sleuthing, and non-stop
action make this a hard SF thriller that will grab the
reader and not let go until the last page.
