In this noir thriller set on the interstellar Quadrail, former government agent Frank Compton can’t catch a break. After a successful mission against the Modhri, the coral polyp-based group mind that is attempting to take over the galaxy, Frank arrives at his New York apartment. A young woman is waiting for him, pointing a gun at his face. She tells him that someone on New Tigris is holding her ten-year-old sister. Compton takes her gun and orders her out, only to be rousted out of bed and accused of her brutal murder.

After Frank’s ally Bruce McMicking posts his bail, Frank travels to New Tigris with his assistant, Bayta, and locates the sister, who is part of a key resistance group that is fighting the Modhri throughout the galaxy. Compton must get the girl to a hidden refuge planet via the Quadrail to ensure the continued efforts of the resistance. But can he do it before the Modhri gets to her first?

Compelling characters, hard-boiled sleuthing, and non-stop action make this a hard sci-fi thriller that will grab the reader and not let go.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dion Graham’s whiskey-and-smoke voice conveys the noir elements of this sci-fi story…Graham portrays diverse characters with changes in pitch and effectively uses tonal inflections to convey the author’s sympathies for those who find themselves on the outside of society’s norms.”


  • “Classic trouble…A thriller with all the chases, mysterious aid, and red herrings intrinsic to the breed.”


  • “An engaging and fast-paced space romp.”

    " This series is just better and better. To an extent you can see the plot working in many ways in entirely different setting like a regular train, but the sci-fi adds a lot of twists that wouldn't work anywhere else. Great! "

    " Third book in the quadrail series by Zahn. Not as good as the first one, but still an enjoyable summer read. Read this on the plane ride back from Germany. "
