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).
