The investigation of blackmail and murder on two planets uncovers an interstellar plot that jeopardizes the political balance between the human dominated Republic and the two major alien dominated governments.

It develops themes first sounded in the original book: machine intelligence, prejudice, and human relationships, along with a look at what is truly 'alien'. It is a major work of SF imagination.
