AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A macabre murder case and a planet on the edge of disaster . . .

'Inspector Eddon Brac, from Hegemony Central Police, and Vail ev Vessintor, his parapsych assistant, arrive on Independent Planet P-19 to investigate a series of horrifically violent killings.

'They discover a society sliding into chaos – terrifying nightmares, increasing darkness, storms of psychic energy . . .

'As the murders multiply, the ultimate cause begins to appear as something far more sinister than just a single serial killer.

'Eddon has the detective skills to deal with the practical evidence, Vail has the psychic talents to understand the seemingly supernatural. But tensions are driving them apart. Together they may be able to solve the horror on Independent Planet P-19 – if first they can solve their own feelings for each other.'
