Mind Games of the Deadly Kind

Telepaths to the left of them. Telepaths to the right of them. And danger is all around Commander Susan Ivanova and Security Chief Michael Garibaldi when a Psi Corps convention is held on Babylon 5. Someone will turn this meeting of mind readers into a real blast ... as a bomb makes Babylon 5 a death trap.


The prime suspect is resident telepath Talia Winters. With Talia's old foes, thought-cops Bester and Gray, calling for her head, Ivanova and Garibaldi can't openly help her. Now she's running for her life through a perilous universe, and her psychic talent is her only weapon when her path is blocked by staggering intergalactic horrors: psi cops closing in ... and a killer waiting.

The son of their greatest heroes - he was destined to become their greatest enemy...

Born in the fire and teror of the twenty-second century, the Psi Corps - a group of elite telepaths used to control their own kind - became a finely tuned instrument of oppression. Only the underground, under the determined leadership of Matthew and Fiona Dexter, held out any hope for freedom.

But in 2195, the underground was shattered. The Dexters were killed, and their only son - the brightest hope for the future - was claimed by the Psi Corps. To sever all connections with the past, the child was given a new name: Al Bester.
From that moment forth, to Bester, "the Corps was mother, the Corps was father."

Bester was a telepath of excepitional ability. Ambition drove him to be the Psi Corps' most ruthless operative and to seek to become its master. To attain that goal, he would pay any price, betraying love, friendships, and humanity. And one day he would step into the void beyond death, to confront his own soul - or what remained of it...

Book Two in the gripping new epic trilogy that uncovers the secret history of the Psi Corps.
