At the place where
science fiction meets thriller meets crime meets horror -- you
A future time, a different world . . . and the planet Terra has
colonised the whole known universe. Psychic science has advanced
almost to the level of the physical sciences, weather artists
compose a daily succession of skies and atmospheres. But a new
kind of enemy has appeared on the edges of the universe, the mysterious
Anti-Human. One by one, the far-flung colonies are being consumed,
and even the Centre is starting to come under threat.
This is the background for the detective investigations of Eddon
and Vail. In this future time, there are new techniques for solving
murders - for example, a special scanner to ext ract the memories
from a brain post mortem. But old-fashioned interviews, legwork
and hunches are as necessary as ever.
Vail is the psychic expert who works as Eddon's assistant. She's
tall and slinky, with an aristocratic background and a taste for
Got h ic makeup. Eddon is a detective of the down-to-earth school-of-hard-knocks
type, who dislike psychics on principle. But his feelings towards
Vail are ambivalent . . .
In the 'Eddon and Vail' SF thrillers, this unlikely pair must
investigate multiple ho mi cides in exotic settings. Different
forms of investigation are required in each of the three novels:
THE DARK EDGE, TAKEN
BY FORCE and HIDDEN FROM VIEW.
Even simple serial killings turn out to be something much more
