About the Book

Jeff Rand had a tough, athletic appearance that suggested he may be a good friend or a nasty foe. Women had a gut feeling that he would be a very satisfying lover. Most of all, he appeared to be King Charles II of England dressed in a Brooks Brothers suit in an anachronistic manner. His secretary, Kathie O'Grady, who had the curvaceous features of a Renaissance goddess, walked in as he was getting to his feet. Rand went back to his car and circled the home while admiring the assortment of handguns kept in the basement garage.
There were about thirty different all-metal handguns, ranging from percussion to wheel lock. Mick McKenna had placed his finger exactly where the pain was. Rand was severely injured; the Tri-State Agency received no compensation for the nice, dramatic murder.
Someone would need to be convinced to provide funding for such an inquiry. preferably some unjustly accused innocent person. Someone who could best defend themselves by exposing the genuine bad guy. They were attempting to determine if he was an ally or an adversary as they stared at him carefully. The subsequent month saw events unfold through a deepening fog of rumors, official statements, speculative reporting, and plain lies.

About Author

H.Beam Piper

American science fiction author Henry Beam Piper lived from March 23, 1904, through November 6, 1964. His lengthy Terro-Human Future History trilogy and a more condensed collection of "Paratime" alternate history novellas are his most well-known works. His name is listed as "Horace Beam Piper" in another source, along with a different death date. Henry Beam Piper, it states on his tombstone. Piper may have contributed to some of the confusion when he stated that the H stood for Horace, leading some to believe that he did it because he disliked his name. The majority of Piper's education came through self-learning; he did not "submit myself to the absurd pain of four years in the unpleasant constraints of a raccoon coat" in order to learn science and history. He started working as a worker at the Pennsylvania Railroad's Altoona yards in Pennsylvania when he was 18 years old. He also worked for the railroad as a night watchman. When Piper's career appeared to be in trouble in 1964, he killed himself because he was afraid to ask for help and because he adhered to libertarian principles. The last entry in his diary was dated November 5, and his Pennsylvania death certificate states that his body was discovered on November 8. The precise date of his passing is unknown.
