Melinda M. Snodgrass's The Edge of Ruin, a novel of the eternal battle between science and superstition-in paperback for the first time! I'm Richard Oort. I'm trying to be just an average cop with the Albuquerque Police Department. But two months ago I had learned there were unseen worlds on the borders of our reality. Dimensions filled with horrific, nightmare creatures. Things that viewed humans as prey. Things that drove us to acts of unspeakable violence. I had to fight them, to defend the people I loved, and to find out who I was. And am. Now, I'm still a cop. But now I'm also CEO of Lumina Enterprises, a mysterious, globe-girdling operation I don't even know the full extent of.
