Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
"An entertaining addition to the series [in which Flinx] receives another tantalizing clue to his past." —Booklist

Wandering out there in some remote region of the galaxy is a gargantuan, sentient Tar-Aiym weapons system. All Flinx has to do—while his pals look after his injured love, Clarity Held—is find the hefty object and persuade it to knock out the monstrous evil that is hurtling through space to lay waste to the entire Commonwealth. A no-brainer, really... just as soon as Flinx and his mini-drag, Pip, visit Visaria—a dangerously depraved planet—to make sure that humans are indeed worth saving. But prospects really go south when Flinx runs afoul of a ruthless crime king. What’s more, a new mystery is waiting to be uncovered: a shocking clue about Flinx's shadowy past.

"Nonstop action." —Library Journal

"Fast-paced." —Publishers Weekly
