Human-idomeni relations. Never smooth. Worsening by the day. Then a live Service landmine is discovered on the grounds of the Ha rin enclave near Chicago. The attempted removal goes horribly wrong, and the fallout threatens not only the fragile peace, but the life of Tsecha, Jani Kilian's idomeni friend and mentor. In the midst of this chaos, Jani comes to possess a startling object, a holo of a young man whose face unnerves her. Determined to uncover the truth behind the image, she also fears what it could be. A sign of hope...or the tipping point to war?
