Nola O’Grady is sick and tired of psychic squid-images following her
everywhere, waving their tentacles and generally making nuisances of
themselves. She and her partner, Ari Nathan, have a dangerous job on
their hands, hunting down two criminals who have escaped into another
level of the multiverse, the San Francisco of Terra Six.
Terrorists have turned parts of that city into a deathtrap — religious fanatics, yes, but from what religion? Nola suspects that the Peacock Angel Chaos cult lies behind the bombings and mass murders. As she gathers evidence, she finds herself face-to-face with part of her own personal past that she’d prefer to bury forever.
And by the way, just who is it that keeps trying to kill her?
Katharine Kerr was born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1944 to a family which considered itself British-in-exile far more than American. In 1962, she moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, and has lived there ever since.
In 1979 a friend gave Katherine her first fantasy role-playing game. She became so intrigued with gaming and with the fantasy field that she began writing articles for gaming magazines, and for some time was a contributing editor to ‘Dragon’ magazine, as well as devising gaming modules. Now, however, she is devoting herself exclusively to fiction.
