On a planet governed by harsh laws and customs, a middle-aged counselor responds to a dying man's last wish and embarks on a journey into the unknown to return a traitor's body home for burial. Kube-McDowell depicts a civilization gone quietly awry in this compelling and disturbing story of a man's recovery of his lost honor. The author of The Quiet Pools (Ace, 1990) tells his tale with spartan simplicity, letting his prose imply rather than explicate. On the basis of literary merit as well as good storytelling, this title belongs in most sf collections.
