At the white, freckled, cauliflower-like skin, Chau took a hissing breath. "This is Officer Chau. Confirm that the body is a Lenden." When Raphael Chau pulls the body of a dead alien from the water, he has no idea what he's getting into. It's a decade since a fleet of refugees parked in low-Earth orbit begging for sanctuary, and Vancouver has become a powder-keg of resentment on both sides. Assigned to an investigation that's a minefield of politics and media intrusion, Chau finds himself torn between divided loyalties, between his own people and what's right or wrong. A novella plus four other stories of distant colonies, alternate worlds and alien invasion by the bestselling author of Winter Song, Lightning Days and The Silk Palace.
