Book Description

Sep 2009
What lies beneath the millions of orbiting nanotech satellites that shroud the world called HAZE? Major Keir Roget's mission is to make planetfall in secret, find out, and report back to his superiors in the Federation, the Chinese-dominated government that rules Earth and the colonized planets. For all his effectiveness as a security agent, Roget is troubled by memories of an earlier mission. When he was assigned to the Noram backcountry town of St. George, he not only discovered that the culture was neither as backward nor harmless as his superiors believed, but he barely emerged with his sanity whole. Now, scouting Haze, he finds a culture seemingly familiar, yet frighteningly alien, with hints of a technology far superior to that of the Federation. Yet he is not certain how much of what he sees is real - or how to convey a danger he cannot even prove to his superiors, if he can escape Haze.

More About the Author

No matter what anyone claims, writers are made, not born, and what and how they write is the result of just how they were made... or how they made themselves. I began by writing poetry, which was published only in small magazines, and then went on to write administrative reports while I was a U.S. Naval aviator, followed by research papers, speeches, economic and technical studies, and policy and briefing papers. Along the way, I've been a delivery boy; a lifeguard; an unpaid radio disc jockey; a U.S. Navy pilot; a market research analyst; a real estate agent; director of research for a political campaign; legislative assistant and staff director for U.S. Congressmen; Director of Legislation and Congressional Relations for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency; a consultant on environmental, regulatory, and communications issues; a college lecturer and writer in residence; and unpaid treasurer of a civic music arts association.

As a result, my writing tends to incorporate all of the above, in addition to the science fiction I read from a very early age. After close to sixty published novels, and perhaps a score of short stories, it's fairly clear to me that "what kind of writer" I am for readers tends to depend on which of my books each reader has read.

Along the way, I've weathered eight children, a fondness for three-piece suits [which has deteriorated into a love of vests], a brown Labrador, a white cockapoo, an energetic Shih-tzu, two scheming dachshunds, a capricious spaniel, a crazy Saluki-Aussie, and various assorted pet rodents. Finally, in 1989, to escape nearly twenty years of occupational captivity in Washington, D.C., I escaped to New Hampshire. There I was fortunate enough to find and marry a lovely lyric soprano, and we moved to Cedar City, Utah, in 1993, where she directs the voice and opera program at Southern Utah University and where I attempt to create and manage chaos in the process of writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent Modesitt book 12 July 2009
Format:Hardcover
L. E. Modesitt delivers yet another fascinating sf novel. Through the missions of agent Keir Roget the author offers a careful depiction of two futuristic yet perfectly coherent societies that have to come to terms with each other existence. This is a recurring theme through this author sf work and one that he excels in delivering through intriguing characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read ... 10 Aug 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It reads more like a book from an older era - I've been reading too much Banks / Hamilton recently I suppose. There are way fewer 'sci-fi' terms in this book, but the story and pace are relaxing =) If you like Modesitt - then you should like this. It's not space opera, or high tech, but just pleasant. It's an odd book to categorise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another little bit of magic 5 July 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of this writer, constantly amazed at his output and creactivity. This book is an outstanding read, well crafted and with a very clever theme running throughout. Very topical considering the UK is the most monitored country in the world. Please buy and read - also look at all his other creations - pure genius

Typical Modesitt characters and exploration of themes. I wasn't quite as engaged with the hero as usual but it's still an excellent read and Modesitt fans will love this book.
