Terrorists are loose on Tennyson

Earth has sent its toughest cop to the planet Tennyson to uncover who is behind the terrorist attacks.
None of the evidence makes sense. Everything points to Tennyson's government as the prime suspect in the bombings—and Major Dyle Holloway and his team are there at its invitation. Is Minister of Science Vanderslice really there to help, or does he have his own plan to catch the killers?
But Holloway is still carrying a case with him, the brutal murder of his wife—the only case he never solved. If only Dyle hadn't loved his wife so much. If only he didn't carry her memory with him. If only he wasn't steeped in guilt, then perhaps he could focus, could determine who is behind the murders. But the slaughter makes no more sense than the death of his wife, and the clues are equally bizarre, equally impossible to reconcile with reality ...

About the Author

Patricia Anthony published her first science fiction novel in 1992 with Cold Allies, about the arrival of extraterrestrials in the midst of a 21st Century Third World War. This was followed by Brother Termite, Conscience of the Beagle, Happy Policeman, Cradle of Splendor, and God's Fires, each of which combined science fiction plots with other genres in unconventional ways. Several of her short-fiction works were republished in the 1998 collection Eating Memories. Her 1998 mainstream novel Flanders is the highly metaphysical story of an American sharpshooter in World War I.

Anthony's best-known and most critically acclaimed work is probably 1993's Brother Termite, a tale of political intrigue told from the perspective of the leader of extraterrestrials who have occupied the United States.
