:BEWARE, ALL WHO ENTER HERE...
...into the America of the 21st centure, this forbidden land of nuclear waste, mutants, and aliens. Even now, so many years after the disaser, O-Zone remains under quarantine, off-limits...to all but the wealthiest Owners.
To these eight Owners, it is amusement, a New Year's epic picnic. The land's wild beauty awes them-but the aliens are a shock; the two the Owners kill look disturbingly human.
Haunted, Hooper Albright will return to the depths of the zone-and find, among the aliens, the only woman he's ever loved. His newphew Fisher, brilliant and tormented, will disappear into the aliens' uncharted life-first a victim, finally a hero. And Moura, made a mother by a man she never knew, will face the challenge of her long-buried craving.
Beware, Owners, of the bitter brave new world...beware the O-Zone's most dangerous secret-the fascination of the untamed.
