Author(s): Peter Fehervari
First Black Library novel starring the mysterious alien race the tau
In the jungles of the Dolorosa Coil, a coalition of alien tau and human deserters have waged war upon the Imperium for countless years. Fresh Imperial Guard forces from the Arkhan Confederates are sent in to break the stalemate and annihilate the xenos. But greater forces are at work, and the Confederates soon find themselves broken and scattered. As they fight a desperate guerrilla war, their only hope may lie in the hands of a disgraced commissar, hell-bent on revenge.
As a full-time TV editor, Peter Fehervari's life is an eternity of cuts and mixes and the dreams of thirsting producers. When off-duty he frequents caves, abandoned churches and the occasional haunted asylum in pursuit of guerrilla filmmaking. He has been accused of being a fictional character, but insists he is strange but true.
