Caleb Wachterabout this book: Imagine a far-off future where humanity controls half of the galaxy, and the vast Imperium which presides over all of it is teetering on the verge of collapsing beneath its own weight. With each star system connected to the rest of the Imperium via a sprawling network of wormholes, the long arm of the Imperium is never as far as one might like it to be.
So what might happen if one of those wormholes collapses, and an entire cluster of star systems is cut off from the rest of the Imperium for two centuries? How would they survive? What kind of social evolution might occur? A possible answer lies within the Chimera Sector, which is the setting of this story.
This tale follows Jericho, a special kind of assassin (called an 'Adjuster') whose actions are not only tolerated, but are actually instigated and sanctioned by the voting public. His publicly mandated mission is to reward political corruption with the only truly final punishment: execution.
But when a young Investigator named Masozi gets caught up in Jericho's complex and secretive mission, he decides that saving her is worth the risk. He then exposes her a world of corruption which sits beneath the surface of their seemingly sterile, strangely efficient society.
Before all is said and done they will become embroiled in a sequence of events which will change them, and the Chimera Sector, forever.
