Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
"A fast-paced, engaging story that satisfies the needs of its likable, still growing protagonist, as well as readers who want yet more of the excitement Foster has delivered over the years." —Booklist

"I know who your father is... Gestalt." A stunned Flinx hears these dying words from one of the renegade eugenicists whose experiments with humans twenty-odd years ago shocked the galaxy... and spawned Flinx. So Flinx and his minidrag, Pip, venture to Gestalt, an out-of-the- way planet that may supply the key to Flinx’s shadowy past and strange powers. Unfortunately for Flinx, Gestalt also hosts a resident bounty hunter who’s just learned about the stupendous reward offered for a certain dead redhead. Flinx gets a chance to test his adversary’s skills when our hero’s skimmer is blasted out of the sky and into a raging river in the middle of nowhere—a nowhere of impassable terrain and ravenous, carnivorous beasts.

"An exciting adventure... [Readers will] be engrossed in this fast- moving story." —Library Journal

"Foster knows how to spin a yarn." —Starlog
