Running from poverty and hopelessness, Ramon Espejo boarded one of the great starships of the mysterious, repulsive Enye. But the new life he found on the far-off planet of Sao Paulo was no better than the one he abandoned. Then one night his rage and too much alcohol get the better of him. Deadly violence ensues, forcing Ramon to flee into the wilderness.
Mercifully, almost happily alone--far from the loud, bustling hive of humanity that he detests with sociopathic fervor--the luckless prospector is finally free to search for the one rich strike that could make him wealthy. But what he stumbles upon instead is an advanced alien race in hiding: desperate fugitives, like him, on a world not their own. Suddenly in possession of a powerful, dangerous secret and caught up in an extraordinary manhunt on a hostile, unpredictable planet, Ramon must first escape . . . and then, somehow, survive.
And his deadliest enemy is himself.
From three of the most respected voices in the science fiction world comes this riveting, emotionally compelling morality tale set in an unforgiving alien world that ponders the perennial question: What makes us human?
