Summary
"Alex Benedict, interstellar antiquities dealer, and his assistant, Chase Kolpath, are on vacation when they receive a cryptic message from celebrated writer Vicki Greene, whom neither has ever met, asking for help." "When they return to their home base on Rimway and attempt to follow up, Alex discovers that Greene has asked for and received a mind wipe. She has no memory of her past life or of her plea for assistance. But she has transferred an enormous sum of money to Alex without explanation. He concludes she expects him to do something. But what?" "To answer that question, Alex and Chase venture to the place where Greene had been vacationing prior to sending her message. It is the most remote of human worlds, a planet literally outside the galaxy. There they will uncover a secret connected to a decades-old political upheaval, a secret that it will soon become obvious somebody is desperate to keep hidden - though the price of that silence is unimaginable."--BOOK JACKET
