Ash Ock: The Paratwa Saga, Book Two

Christopher Hinz, Author St. Martin's Press $18.95 (308p) ISBN 978-0-312-03291-3
This second book of the Paratwa Saga (a trilogy is planned) maintains the stylish writing and plotting of Hinz's Leige-Killer , which first introduced the Paratwa--genetically enhanced, telepathically connected pairs of trained killers--and Gillian and Nick, hunters who stalk the Paratwa in the satellite colonies orbiting a demolished Earth. The scattered hints of a future conflict present in the first book are developed here, with the addition of several new threads, most of which await resolution in the third volume. Here the colonists learn that the generation starships which fled the devastated Earth have been commandeered by the Ash Ock, five pairs of Paratwa leaders who are attempting to dominate humanity. Evidence of fresh Paratwa massacres prompts the waking of Nick and Gillian from 56 years of scientifically controlled slumber. Deadly seductresses, unstable ingenues and scheming scientists populate the fanciful adventures that ensue. (Nov.)
