(From the publisher):
'Stay the hell out of my mind,' hissed Forrester. 'Just stay away from me.' She turned and stalked out of the room. Chris put his head in his hands.
The Earth colony on Yemaya 4 is a very ordinary place. The colonists spend their time farming, building homes, raising families.
But when the Doctor and his companions arrive they find a virus sweeping through the population, unleashing the colonists' latent psychic powers. The Doctor and Chris fall prey to the infection, and discover telepathy is not the only symptom. Chris is unable to resist the call of an ancient place of sacrifice, while Roz and Benny travel back in time to the origin of the virus, and uncover a desparate bid for immortality.
And all the time, the Doctor is playing a dangerous game with the troopers of the Dione-Kisume company, who have come to either to reclaim their stolen biotechnology - or sterilize the planet.
