In the streams of space...
His rigger crewmates suddenly and horribly dead, Gev Carlyle is adrift in the Flux, the "subjective sea" that carries starships at faster-than-light speeds. His lone companion, and his only hope for survival, is a cantankerous castaway alien.
Only a compatible rigger team, their visions meshed in psychic unity, can safely harness the most turbulent currents of the Flux – and Carlyle's ship is being drawn inexorably toward a deadly maelstrom, the unthinkable stresses of the Hurricane Flume. For even a scant chance at survival, he needs the catlike alien's help. But the price for that help is a complete merging of minds and memories.
And Carlyle, at war with his own past, dreads that union more than death itself.
