“It has been several years since a first novel has grabbed me the way Keith Brooke's Keepers of the Peace did… a cyber-anti-war story. Or anti-cyber-war. Cyber-dove? Whatever. Lucius Shepard and Joe Haldeman bounced off Heinlein and Gibson.” (Locus)
Jed Brindle is an alien. At least, that's what they call him on Earth. He's really a colony-bred soldier – augmented with cyborg implants – with the Extraterran Peacekeeping Force, fighting for control of what used to be the United States.
When he and his squad are sent behind enemy lines on a kidnap operation, it isn't long before things start to go wrong. Marooned in the desert with two wounded comrades and his quarry, Jed's mission becomes not just a struggle for survival but also a journey to rediscover the quiet, reliable farm boy he was before he became a machine for killing.
