For hundreds of years the human race has been manipulated into starting a war that could destroy civilisation. As Chief Investigator Paula Myo hunts down the terrifying creature behind the ploy, the invasion continues and dozens of worlds fall to the enemy. Admiral Kime orders a defence with war-winning super-weapons, only to find that their adversaries have equally powerful armaments. How they got them is the question. Has the Commonwealth's top-secret defence project been compromised, or is the truth even worse? A new cover reissue of the first novel in Peter F. Hamilton's epic and bestselling adventure, the Void trilogy.
