The child of their greatest heroes - he was destined to become their darkest enemy...
In the twenty-second century, the discovery of human telepaths led to terror and bloodshed, and to the creation of the Psi Corps - a government agency of elite telepaths who were used to control their own kind. Under the command of a power-mad politician, the Corps became a ruthless tool of oppression, and the telepath underground was formed.
Matthew and Fiona Dexter led the resistance to its greatest victories. But when they were martyred for the cause, their only child was claimed by the very forces they had died opposing.
Raised from infancy within the Psi Corps, Alfred Bester was a telepath of exceptional ability, determined to make his mark by transforming himself into a master of deceit. Schooled in hate but tormented by shards of conscience, he wrestled with the seductiveness of the sinister cause he served. But slowly stripped of humanity by the war between decency and betrayal, he surrendered his soul - and rose to become the most dreaded figure of his time...
Book Two in the gripping new epic trilogy that uncovers the secret history of the Psi Corps.
