(The second book in the Parric Family series)
A novel by

Dorrin Parric is dead, and his son Orion has sworn to avenge him. But first he must run a gauntlet of human assassins, blood crazed androids and aging, paranoid dictators. Petty tyrants rule the few straggling settlements, where mankind holds out against the darkness. Time and again Parric eludes the strange traps set for him by the forces of decay. But his luck is running out. At the end of the road is Philayork, a bewildering metropolis wracked by fear and evil. Whatever had killed Orion Parric's father was also waiting for him in the ruins of earth's last great city.
