More About the Author

George R.R. Martin sold his first story in 1971 and has been writing professionally since then. He spent ten years in Hollywood as a writer-producer, working on The Twilight Zone, Beauty and the Beast, and various feature films and television pilots that were never made. In the mid '90s he returned to prose, his first love, and began work on his epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire. He has been in the Seven Kingdoms ever since. Whenever he's allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on June 25, 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This continues the world and focuses on the conspiracy that was uncovered in the last novel. It touches on many of the effects to individuals when Gregg Hartmann goes public with the information. It is very enjoyable and thought provoking. It's amazing that so much happens in a little more than 400 pages. I also liked how we were able to see the effects of a course of action, meaning that Hartmann would go to the newspapers and the story following that would follow from the events sparked by the newspapers. Pretty nicely done. Favorite parts included finding out more about Bagabond, now Suzanne Menotti; the reappearance, although short, of the jumpers; and the changes to Dr. Finn's live. Plus the entire Feeding Frenzy chapter is awesome!!

There is a lot of Gregg Hartmann in this book, as he is the man Hannah turns to for help, with the evidence that she has discovered about the Card Shark conspiracy.

Events happen in many countries, but a couple of our favorite aces, The Sleeper and Black Shadow, decide to get a little proactive. The Jumper threat is also finally ended.

Hartmann also learns about the Wild Card virus from a personal point of view, in a way he never expected.

Hannah is still on the case, as Rudo tries to snow Hartmann on the Sharks, and Puppetman is stirring.
