From Publishers Weekly:

Few things in the universe of Nighbert's first novel are what they seem. After a 20-year war, Jacob Tessarian, self-styled Emperor of the People's Revolutionary Empire, is still terrorizing the peaceful but stagnant United Planets. But nemesis stalks him in the figure of assassin Anton Stryker, who has been resurrected following his death at Tessarian's hands and rebuilt into a superman. Stryker's allies include an intelligent spaceship named Nefertiti and a sabertooth Hellcat that shares its mind with Hersule Al-Ahmdi, a human scientist. At one point, Tessarian himself escapes Stryker's blow by hiding his mind in the body of an eight-year-old girl whom Stryker has befriended. In this eventful if uninvolving interplanetary thriller, Nighbert works hard for color, but the story seldom catches the imagination.

From Library Journal:

A cybernetically enhanced assassin pursues the interplanetary terrorist responsible for his own "execution" and uncovers the secret of his birth in an unexpected twist of temporal fate. Nighbert's first novel features solid characterizations, a tightly constructed story, and an ingenious use of time travel. For sf collections. JC
