Underneath is a problem of identity. What makes up a person? Charmian Daniels has to handle an explosive situation in which her own emotions are involved. She must uncover the identity of the victim as well as the real nature of the crime.

Diana Palmer's second installment in her thrilling space epic is a vast panorama of far-flung civilizations, interplanetary conflict and galaxy-spanning passion… THE MORCAI BATTALION: THE RECRUIT A prophecy foretold: Three years after the unprovoked attack on a peaceful colony, the war between the Rojok dynasty and the Tri-Galaxy Fleet rages on. Born of that war is the Morcai Battalion, a fleet comprised of Centaurians and humans—the first collaboration of its kind and a step toward an intergalactic alliance. But the fragile union is tested as their courageous commander in chief, Dtimun, is faced with the temptation of the forbidden—and human—Dr. Madeline Ruszel. A combat surgeon, Ruszel is aware of the danger of inciting a Centaurian's interest, even if he is the most intriguing of men. Besides putting their mission at risk, personal relations between their kinds are still outlawed. But a prophecy that touches on both their lives and the future of all alien nations hints that a greater unity may be theirs for the taking…if they, and their crew, survive in the battle for peace.

Europe and the USA will soon be covered by thick ice, according to the scientific report section of Dark Visitor. The primary author is a Harvard educated astronomer and one of the other two has a Ph.D. in climatology and worked for NOAA, so this report must be taken seriously. Recent astronomical observations indicate that a black hole is approaching our solar system. Although the black hole will pass more distant than the orbit of Saturn, its gravity will slightly change the Earth's orbit. The year will become 378 days long. During winter it will be 6% closer to the sun and during summer, 11% farther away. The resulting milder winter and cooler summers are a curse, not a blessing. Heavy "spring snows" will fall all winter long and not entirely melt in the colder following summer. Mathematical proofs of these facts are included in the scientific report section and appendix. The approaching black hole will never be visible in telescopes, but its trajectory is now known from observations of small perturbations in Pluto's orbit. If the authors' predictions are true, the global catastrophe that will begin in 2007 will be far worse than any that has ever occurred before.
