General Note:
"A Tom Doherty Associates book."
From the author of the all-time bestselling "Star Wars" novel, "Heir to the Empire," comes this thrilling, fast-paced space adventure.

"Frank Compton used to be an agent for the security forces of Earth, but that was a piece of cake compared to what he's had to deal with working for the aliens who run the Quadrail, an interstellar transportation system connecting a dozen civilizations across the galaxy. He's been trying to end the domination of the Modhri, an enormously powerful alien life-form whose goal is to rule the galaxy by controlling the thoughts of all its citizens. It does so by having parts of itself "infect" others on contact and have them act as its agents without being aware that they're being manipulated. When Frank and his assistant, Bayta, journey to investigate a connection between the Modhri and the Filiaelians, they come up against a new threat. Passengers are being murdered--but something besides murder haunts the Quadrail. A plot is brewing that even the Modhri fears. And once again, Frank and Bayta may be the only ones who can stop it."--Dust jacket.
