The Hound Bridget ban has vanished and the Kennel (the mysterious superspy agency) has given up looking for her…
But her daughter, the harper Mearana, has not, and she has convinced the scarred man, Donovan, to aid in her search.
But Donovan’s mind has been shattered by Those of Name, the rulers of the Confederacy, and no fewer than seven quarrelling personalities now inhabit his skull. How can he hope to see Mearana safely through her quest?
Together, they follow Bridget ban’s trail to the raw worlds of the frontier, edging ever closer to the de-civilised and barbarian planets of the Wild. Along the way, they encounter evidence that they too are being followed—by a deadly agent of Those of Name.
