Description: The novel begins many years in the future when Mayn, an exemplary spaceship officer, is cruelly banished to a remote asteroid. He records his survival schemes (between ingenious and desperate), but can only scour his memory for clues as to who and why... In Part Two, the scene moves to a criminal investigation on the mother ship named "Yggdrasil". As they tease out a compelling narrative from recalcitrant suspects (mysteriously, Mayn had more enemies than he thought) the Investigators are startled by new evidence which totally defies scientific logic. More is at stake than a conspiracy against one officer. Must hatred be forever? Is a life of healing possible?
