Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chaos was sweeping the world, governments were on the verge of collapse, the global economy was hitting rock bottom-and then a man appeared, Nagunda Aran, a charismatic speaker who worked miracles and touched millions of Americans. He made no claim of being a messiah, but he was likely to suffer the traditional fate meted out to messiahs. As his influence grew, powerful men perceived him as a threat to their dominion and made plans to have him eliminated. But one assassin after another failed, thwarted by bizarre circumstances, sometimes even killing each other by "accident" when multiple assassins were sent to do the job. And Aran said that the attempts to kill him were of no importance, since he was fated to die soon-as would many thousands more in an impending cosmic disaster that he predicted was descending on the Earth. . . .

About the Author

A former paratrooper and research ecologist, John Dalmas began his writing career by selling his first novel, The Yngling, to the legendary editor of Analog, John W. Campbell. Dalmas is known for his masterful combination of action-adventure with the theme of the mystic warrior. In addition to The Regiment and its sequels, his many novels for Baen include The Lion of Farside and its sequels, The Lizard War and its recent sequel The Helverti Invasion, and such non-series novels as Soldiers and The Second Coming.
