The adventure continues in this action-packed follow up to The Degan Incident and The Cassini Mission!
Peri McSmith is aboard the U.S.C. Cassini, en route to the Degan Homeworld. A routine medical examination reveals a startling yet impossible link between Peri and the Cassini’s last mission.
Beshel Drago, Chief Investigator for the Degan Federation, searches for leads on the rogue scientists conducting illegal genetic experiments using Degan citizens. He hits yet another a dead end—until the rescued embryo’s human parent is identified.
When the Degan Science Institute is attacked, and the embryo stolen, it’s up to Beshel and Peri to not only recover the child, but to prevent all out war between the Degans and the Galactic Planetary Union.
