Description

This is the stunning military science fiction novel, from the "New York Times" bestselling author of "Prospero Burns". The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to journalist Lex Falk, but when a local squabble starts to turn violent and the media start getting the runaround from the military high command, his interest is seriously piqued. Forbidden from approaching the battlezone he gets himself chipped inside the head of a combat veteran. When the soldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get back home again...and blow the lid on the story of a lifetime. File Under: Science Fiction - "Future War"; "Breaking News"; "A Dead Host"; and, "Long Way Home". Embedded is a nail-biting, seat-of-the-pants ride - which also has serious things to say about war and the news media. ("The Guardian").
