Description
Home to generations of humans, the starship Argonos has wandered aimlessly throughout the galaxy for hundreds of years, desperately searching for other signs of life. Now, a steady, unidentified transmission lures them toward a nearby planet, where the grisly remains of a former colony await the crew. Haunted by what they have seen, the crew has no choice but to follow when another signal beckons the Argonos into deep space--and into the dark heart of an alien mystery... "[Russo] is not afraid to take on the question of evil in a divinely ordered universe...This is an ambitious novel of ideas that generates considerable suspense while respecting its sources, its characters, and most important, the reader."-- The New York Times "A tale of high adventure and personal drama in the far future."-- Library Journal "Relentlessly suspenseful...full of mystery...very exciting."-- Science Fiction Chronicle
