Meanwhile, Angus Thermopyle had been captured by the UMCP and turned into a deadly cyborg. Now, as the UMC controllers looked on from the sidelines, he was heading for Thanatos Minor, programmed to carry out a secret mission that could have nightmarish consequences for them all...

BOOK THREE OF THE GAP SERIES

Stephen Donaldson's bestselling series reaches new levels of intensity and power as complex schemes within schemes begin to unravel on a lonely planetoid in forbidden space, where the players in a power game of mind-shattering proportions are heading for an explosive confrontation.

One thing is certain – they will not be alone. Angus Thermopyle has been captured by the UMCP and turned into a deadly cyborg. Now, as the UMC controllers look on from the sidelines, he is heading for Thanatos Minor, programmed to carry out a secret mission that could have nightmarish consequences for them all. . .
