**** HAS SPOILERS**** The follow-up to Biggle's "All the Colors of Darkness". After having his mind wiped by the aliens in 'Colors', Darzak is then called upon to join them to investigate 'The Darkness'. He has hired a new assistant, a 60 year old woman, who trails Darzak and the Alien to the transmitter site and then go along with them. A bit tongue in cheek, a 1980's private detective working the galaxy beat. Sorry to say the remain volumes continuue the slide to a sterotype gumshoe storyline anding. Right up to Darzak being made the 'First Consellor of the Galaxy". Right.

I first read this book when I came out and loved it. Tight writing, great characters, wonderful plot, it provoked thought. The entire Dark series did. Biggle is vastly under appreciated and deserves your attention.

I have a soft spot in my heart for this book. I read it forty years ago in grade school, and I can say that it changed my whole attitude to books. It was the first time I was really transported by a story. From then on I was hooked on literature. After having a child of my own I searched for this book to read it to her when she was five. Alas, the story seemed dated, and not very polished, but I will always remember it fondly, and thank Mr Biggle for the impact his book made on me.

This is the direct sequel to "All the Colors of Darkness" by Lloyd Biggle, Jr and takes place just two years after that book has completed. Jan Darzek, the hero of this series, still has no conscious recollection of the actual events that took place in the end of the prior installment, but this doesn't stop him from volunteering to go star-hopping through the galaxy in order to discover the source of the mysterious "Dark" that has infested world after world throughout the Milky Way. Things don't go quite as smoothly as he might have wished, though -- not only does he end up stranded on an alien world with his sweet-as-she-is-dangerous assistant Mrs. Schulpe (Schluppy!), but his guide is found dead, the council that hired him is killed right in front of him, and the only person who knows who he is and why he's there (or even what an Earthling is) is nowhere to be found! Still, he manages to salvage the situation and shed light upon the Dark's many shadows, saving the day!
