Frank Compton, a government whistle blower is back with faithful side kick and engineered schizophrenic Bayta. The Modhri, group mind omnipotent evil opponent, is willing to compromise to destroy an abomination. Much of the action once again takes place on the Quadrail.
The concept of the Quadrail and it’s interconnection of galactic empires is the thread that ties the plots of the books in this series, Night Train To Rigel and The Third Lynx being the first two.
Bayta discovers a kindred soul in a young, vulnerable girl that she and Frank end up befriending. McMicking, the chameleon like fixer, pops up with his own agenda but continues to surprise Compton with his very able and deadly support.
There is a similarity to the books of the series but each tale has it’s own, often lethal twist.
The series continues to grow on me and I enjoyed this book more than the last.
I recommend it.
