Shira Calpurnia bore the office and duties of arbitor senioris in the service of the 'Lex Imperia'. Having failed in one of her duties, she is preparing for her trial. But then the unexpected happens. The master of the Bastion Psykana is murdered. Shira's trial is postponed. Master Chastener Dast and Preacher Orovene divert the garrison ship to the Bastion Psykana. It is a vast fortification housing countless telepaths. Due to possible violent tendencies, each Astropath takes every step at gun point. Should the seer lose control of his mind, the armed vitifer automatically executes the psyker without hesitation. ................. Shira is temporarily given back her rank and tasked with finding the killer. Master Otranto's body had been found within his inner chambers. Whoever killed him got through all seals and wards before doing the deed. The killer should not have been able to get in, but more disturbing is the fact that once sealed within the chambers, there is not way out. The killer should have still been in the room with the body. No auspex can smell the killer. No psyker-seance can pin him down, and no Verispex can track him. ............. The murderer is like a phantom. Everything and everyone, alive and machine, claim that Master Otranto was alone at all time. If alone, he could not have been killed. Shira's first thought is one of the psykers. Perhaps one who is ambitious and wants the succession to the Master's seat. But the Watchmaster on duty at the time of the killing is the best at what he does. The Watchmaster keeps balance. In other words, he knows what each and every Astropath is doing at every second of every day. Whoever killed the master was not a psyker and no one else could have gotten close. Shira must somehow locate an invisible traitor. To do this, she has to confront the one kind of weakness and failure she may not be able to deal with: her own. ............... ***** YES! FINALLY! I knew that author Matthew Farrer had it in him to write a five star novel and here it is! The author gives readers a heroine that is human and fallible yet stands tall and does the duty she is charged with doing, no matter the cost. The novels read like a forensic mystery. The characters are well developed and the story flows smoother than fine silk. BRAVO! *****
