In this ?mind-boggling, fascinating and irresistible? (Kirkus Reviews) sequel to Gridlinked, Asher returns us to his Polity future. The benevolent but firm hand of the Earth Central AIs?the Polity?senses that enormous trouble is brewing, so they dispatch Ian Cormac, legendary Earth Central Security Agent, to stop it. Cormac knows that he must find a powerful alien entity?nicknamed The Dragon?and the Jain technology that it controls if he is to combat the growing threat. For Skellor, Cormac?s old nemesis, is back, and he's searching as well. Cormac thought he'd gotten rid of Skellor the last time he faced him. In fact, he thought he?d killed Skellor, but this evil genius is just about indestructible...and now he?s got some formidable help. Mr. Crane, a robot killing machine, has been rebuilt and reprogrammed by Skellor. Skellor sees great potential in Crane, since the psychotic golem will leave whole star systems littered with corpses in order to complete his mission as he tries to escape a ghastly past he cannot forget?or entirely remember. As the hunt for Jain technology unfolds, only one thing can be certain: all of them are on a collision course with destiny. But will any of them survive? Warning: Explicit violence. Jacket art by Bruce Jensen. (485 pp.) 2005.
