Summary (From the publisher):

A Dissident faction of the Clan, the alternate-universe group of families that had traded covertly with our world for a century or more, has carried nuclear devices between the worlds and exploded them in Washington, D.C., killing the president of the United States. Now it will exterminate the rest of the Clan and keep Miriam alive only long enough to bear her child, the heir to the throne of their land in the Gruinmarkt world.

The worst and deepest secret is now revealed: Behind the horritying plot is a faction of ther U.S. government itself, and it is preparing for a political takeover in the aftermath of disaster. There is no safe place for Miriam and her Clan except, perhaps, in the third alternate world, New Britain - which has just had a revolution and a nuclear incident of its own.
