Book Description Orion / Victor Gollancz, 2000. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good: Light signs of wear. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Cover Art: blacksheep (illustrator). 1st Edition. © 2000: 2nd in the 'Polar City' series of books:- Synopsis: The Republic: a human-run interstellar government caught between the Carli Confederation and the H'Allevae Coreward Alliance, trying to maintain its independence in the face of two huge galactic powers. A political incident is brewing on Polar City, which might cost the Republic it's autonomy. A Carli artifact is missing along with a bureaucrat from the Confederation Embassy. And Yosef Mbaye, a troubled athlete from the successful Polar City Bears, is being blackmailed to carry something with him to the Galactic Series on Arah, the capital planet of the Republic. When Yosef refuses to let Bobbie Lacey help him find the blackmailer, and the blackmailer turns up dead, Bobbie can't leave it alone. Whatever Yosef is carrying could lose the Bears - and everyone else - a whole lot more than the Galactic series. 'Polar City Nightmare' is an unputdownable thriller set in a future at once familiar and alien, an intricate setting brought alive by the brilliant combined talents of Katherine Kerr and Kate Daniel:- (original cost £16.99).
