Bengal Station

(2004)
A novel by

 
Jeff Vaughan, a world-weary telepath employed by the spaceport on Bengal Station, discovers a sinister cult that worships a mysterious alien god. The Church of the Adoration of the Chosen One uses drugs to commune with the ultimate &#151; and murder to silence those who oppose their beliefs. Together with Indian cop Jimmy Chandra, Vaughan&#146;s investigations take him to the colony planet of Verkerk&#146;s World and the terrible secret of the extraterrestrial Vaith. . . . Meanwhile, in Thailand, street-girl Sukara dreams of being reunited with her long-lost sister on Bengal Station. She meets Osborne, a telepath posing as a businessman with his own secrets, who promises to take her away from her life of prostitution in Bangkok. They travel to Bengal Station, and there Sukara learns of her sister&#146;s fate, and unwittingly leads Osborne to his target &#151; Jeff Vaughan. The story follows Vaughan as his mistrust of his fellow humans is overturned by his growing feelings for Thai street-girl Sukara, one of the few good people he&#146;s ever encountered in a life of reading cynical, jaded minds. Bengal Station is exotic noir &#151; Blade Runner meets Chinatown &#151; with characters the reader will care about, fast action, and thought-provoking ideas.
