When he woke up this morning he was just "a" suspect. Suddenly, Terran Defense Directorate Captain Daniel Briggs is the "only" suspect. Wanted for questioning in the murder of his ex-wife Anjelica, Daniel plunges headfirst into a quest meant to prove his innocence. What he finds instead are lies stacked upon half-truths and deceit. In the decadent back streets of Boomtown he begins an epic journey that will lead him into the very bowels of treachery. Armed only with his handicapped paranatural powers and a mind steeled by years of extraterrestrial combat, he combs the shadows of the city's underbelly in search of the truth, trying desperately to stay one step ahead of those who would stop him from discovering it. With the odds stacked against him, it seems a quest meant to fail from the start. But those who know Daniel best, know to fear him, for it is when he's cornered that he is the most resilient. Will his legendary resilience be enough? How will he fare when the whole world seems bent on stopping him? Somewhere amidst it all, an invisible clock begins its countdown. When it reaches zero, mankind is doomed.|
