Raised in a state orphanage and trained as a journalist, David Chance settles into a comfortable niche in society until a letter from his natural father plunges him into a world of treachery and violence. As he uncovers the truth behind a generation of failed experiments in breeding genetically superior humans, Chance discovers his own carefully manipulated heritage. The Australian-born author of Drowning Towers ( LJ 9/15/88) explores the darker side of human concerns in a complexly layered sf/mystery set in an all-too-possible 21st century. Most collections should have this.
