Morgan Roche had been an intelligence agent for the Commonwealth of Empires when she turned renegade to determine the truth about a man named Adoni Cane. The answer - that he is one of the genetically enhanced warriors called the Sol Wunderkind - shook the foundations of her world.
Now Roche is faced with an even more frightening fact - Cane may not be the last of his kind. A system has vanished, leaving only a terrible emptiness in space. Word spreads across the galaxy that the Sol Wunderkind have returned. (Publisher's blurb, back cover).
'In the Sol System, Earth is no more. But aboard the various starships and space stations orbiting the still-burning sun live the remnants of mankind - unaware of the danger they're in from an army of genetically enhanced warriors determined to destroy all humanity... Renegade intelligence agent Morgan Roche has been charged by the High Humans to protect mankind from the threat of the cloned warriors. Pursuing one such warrior into the Sol System, she strives to learn the true identity of the enemy - and how to defeat them. It is here, in the light of the star called Sol, that Morgan will learn the truth - about the artificial intelligence known as The Box, about the man who calls himself Adoni Cane, about the High Humans ... and about her destiny.'
