Retracing Danny's last hours, she discovers that his death may be tied to a tragedy from the past. For 25 years, Central Gov has been lying about the mystery, even willing to go to war to protect their secrets. Secrets that hide a conspiracy so deep within Central Gov that it threatens all of human civilization throughout the inhabited reaches of the galaxy - and beyond.
