Outlaw telepath Rayn DeStar has discovered the perfect hiding place . . . a home in the wasteland of Exodus. But his peaceful anonymity comes to an abrupt end when murder brings interplanetary investigators to the desert. Rayn has little interest in the crime but a great deal in the female telepath providence has sent him. Dina's strength awakens in him the lust for power and dominance he's fought against his entire life.
Rookie agent Dina Marlijn arrives on Exodus carrying as many secrets as she hopes to unravel. She hides the fact that she's a telepath from everyone but her partner, for her abilities are close to those of the Dark Star dens, a race so hated they're banned from Synergy Worlds. But there's one secret Dina keeps even from her partner. No one hates the dens more than she does.
When her prime suspect, a dens calling himself Rayn DeStar, saves her life, Dina pursues him for answers. With her investigative and telepathic skills, she believes she can manipulate him into helping her. When Rayn counters with lies, she expects nothing less, but when their telepathic bond leads her down a path of both physical and mental seduction, she's unprepared for the consequences. Trapped in a web of desire, mistrust, and betrayal, Dina crosses all the lines she never thought she would . . .

No matter how far advanced man becomes nor how far his path takes him, there will still be law enforcement needed and there still will be hatred. These two basic elements shape Dina's life. Even if she was not involved in law enforcement, she would still have to keep her deadly secret; she is a telepath with powers rivaling the hated dens, a race of psi warriors who has been banned from civilization. Only her partner knows this about her, but even he does not know the depth of her hate for the dens. That hate will be put to the test when the two go to Exodus on an investigation and Dina is nearly killed. Her salvation comes from none other than a man she should hate with all her heart, Rayn, a dens warrior. However, she needs him and he needs her help as well. Seeing into one another's minds forges a bond that surpasses the hate and places them in more peril. ........................ *** Set in an exotic locale, this is a lesson in human nature that is subtly told and has much to teach everyone in a world where different often means bad to the ignorant. ***
