Summary
  • "Miriam Beckstein is a young, hip business journalist in Boston. She discovered in The Family Trade and The Hidden Family that her family comes from an alternate reality, that she is very well connected, and that her family is a lot too much like the Mafia for comfort. She found herself caught in a family trap in The Clan Corporate and betrothed to a bruin-damaged prince, and then all hell broke loose: a coup against the Clan by die Nobility." "Now, in The Merchants' War, Miriam has escaped to world three in the turmoil, and remains in hiding from both the Clan and their opponents. She has found her way to her friends, who have a revolution to plan and now must incorporate Miriam to protect her."
  • "There is a nasty shooting war going on in the Gruinmarkt world of the Clan, directed on the Clan side from hideouts in the United States, and we know something that Miriam does not, something that she's really going to hate when she finds out - if she lives long enough to find out. And the Clan does not know that the United States has discovered them and is out to destroy them, too."--BOOK JACKET
