Cat. Street punk. Psion. Telepath. Kidnapped and dragged to Earth by an interstellar organisation and forced to protect those he most hates, those who most hate him…The taMings. A cyber-augmented DNA-incestuous clan of such wealth and power that their family arguments change the destiny of worlds. Now one taMing is a killer’s target. But which? And who would dare? Seeking answers, Cat finds lies and savagery, passion and atrocity – trails that lead from crystal valleys to clubs for silver-skinned beauties. From the homicidal enclaves of drug kings to a fanatic’s pulpit. From the halls of the Assembly to a cyberspace hell. Seeking assassins, Cat discovers a mystery that could cost him his future. His sanity. His life. Cat isn’t a bodyguard – he’s bait.
